Between Tafelberg and the Wolfberg Arch, there are many streams that are marked as "perennial" on the 1:50000 geographic survey maps that I have. Specifically, there's a valley called "Gabriel's Kloof" through which one such stream runs.

How many of these streams are actually perennial or would be running around this time of year? (Can one just trust that if it is marked as perennial (solid blue line, according to the legend on the 1:50000 maps) you can rely on it being there?)

This time of year I would say that that stream will be running

There is a surprising amount of water in the Cederberg, particularly at an altitude below the shale bands. Most streams marked as perennial on the map will be so, in my experience. At higher altitudes and in some parts, you need to know where to find water. I would be pretty confident in this stream having water.
