Star gazing in the Cederberg

The stars shine bright at Mount Ceder because there is no light pollution from surrounding towns or cities.  The skies are clear so you can see most of the constellations.  From May to October, the milky way is visible in the Southern Hemisphere and can be seen clearly at Mount Ceder.   We host a photographic course that runs over the new moon weekends where experienced photographer Juan Venter will teach you how to photograph the milky way.  Follow Juan's work on Facebook.

Even better, take your own star chart and explore the heavens from your cottage at Mount Ceder! The sky is alive with constellations – known and about to be created by you. The options are endless and are only limited by your own creativity! Star charts are available from the shop at reception.
