In order to walk to the Maltese Cross in the Cederberg you will need to collect a permit which you can do at the Dwarsdrivier Farm, alternatively from the Algeria Forest Station. From there you can follow the map to the start of the walk (a drive of approximately 8km from Dwarsrivier).

This is a great walk thanks to the well marked path that should take you between 3.5 and 4 hours, depending on your fitness level. The walk starts out relatively flat and then starts a moderate incline right to the cross, if you’re walking with younger children you may find them a little unhappy on the route upwards (remembering this from doing the walk at only 5 years old). The climb is however well worth it, not only for the end goal of reaching the 5 storey high cross but also for the unparalleled views of the Cederberg mountain range.

The walk back is an easy downhill and you’ll find a few lovely spots to stop and enjoy a sandwich and refreshments at. The route is 7km in total and is highly recommended should you be in the area.
