Cederberg Adventure

The Cederberg Wilderness area is worth spending quality time in and an awesome play ground for those who love adventure ! As part of our latest adventure we camped at Sanddrif which is close to Cederberg Wines where you can also do some quality wine tasting.

Sanddrif campsite is located below the Wolfberg cracks, a scenic day hike through them takes you to the Wolfberg Arch, definitely a must to see some spectacular rock formations. The Cederberg is also a popular rock climbing destination for climbers, and has a number of great climbing spots. A short walk from the campsite takes you to the Sanddrif crag which has a variety of routes graded from 19 to 24.

With many trails out into the mountains for hiking this makes this area great for trail running aswell or a multi day mountaineering trip as we did on a previous visit.

From the campsite there are a nice selection of Mountain bike trails to choose from taking you through these amazing rock formations. Some of the trails have nice technical sections making them more exciting for the skilled riders. There are trails for all levels of riders thought and many miles of gravel roads for those that just want to do some gravel grinding.

There are also various rivers running through the Cederberg Wilderness area which after good rain offer great whitewater kayaking through untouched areas. On this trip we kayaked through the Visgat Canyon on the Olifants river. This was a awesome 2day trip through a very remote canyon.

Team Paradise Adventures @ Red Bull Dolomitenmann 2019

Was great having Team Paradise Adventures represented at the Red Bull Dolomitenmann in Austria this year as the only South African team. This event always has a great atmoshere around it and is based in one of my favourite locations in Austria – Lienz. Can defnitely recommend a visit to the area if you into adventure sports. You can pretty much do everything in this area and training up in the Dolomites is breathtaking ! Hence being the perfect location for this event being a relay between 4 disciplines : –                    Mountain runner – AJ Calitz, Paraglider – James Hope-Lang, Mountain biker – Marthinus Esmeyer, Whitewater kayaker – Don Wewege. 

Was great spending the weekend with awesome team mates – thanks to each of them for a great weekend. Race day turned out to be cold and wet with loads of rain. This made organizers have to make last minute changes to the mountain run and paraglide legs. Things don’t always turn out as planned in a race and with some unfortunate mishaps we did not have the race we wanted. In the end it’s all good since there are much more important things in life than race results. Thanks to Red Bull for making this event possible for us and all their help with organizing everything – much appreciated.
