Studtis, Baviaanskloof

About Cedar Falls Day Hike

The magnificent Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve is one of the Eastern Cape’s most exquisite treasures, acclaimed for the dramatic mountain ranges and unique array of vegetation that make it so scenic. The Cedar Falls Day Hike is in the heart of the Baviaanskloof, and hikers can drink in the beautiful South African landscapes as they follow streams, negotiate rugged pathways, and descend into breath-taking kloofs.

The Cedar Falls Day Hike starts and finishes at the Cedar Falls Base Camp and is open to a maximum of 12 people per day. It takes between four and six hours to complete, depending on the fitness levels of the hikers, and how much time they choose to spend swimming in the inviting waters of the stream and enjoying their lunch.

There are two spots along the hike where you will need to swim in order to get through the narrow gorge. During winter, this water gets cold, and hikers need to be prepared (possibly with a wetsuit and warm, dry clothing). The swim is only a few meters long.

This is an out-and-return trail and ends at the gorgeous Cedar Falls.

A permit is required for the hike. Visitors are urged to book the hike in advance to avoid disappointment.

The Cedar Falls Hiking Trail is just under 300 kilometres from Port Elizabeth (Nelson Mandela Bay), 250 kilometres from Jeffrey’s Bay and about 245 kilometres from the world-famous Addo Elephant National Park.
