    Default Groot River - Mount Cedar

    Hi Philip

    Thanks for the report on the Groot river. It looks like a wonderful place. I've kinda got a bit of a SM bass bug at the moment so I'm super keen to try it out sometime and the chance of a Clanwilliam Yellow makes it even more appealing.

    I went to their site and the rates seem really good if I've interpreted them right. They quote R350 per night and it looks like it's per chalet (sleeps 4). Do you know if that's correct or is it supposed to be per person?

    I also wanted to check what the road access is like. Any chance of normal cars making it there?

    Cheers
    Grant.

    Grant we went their already very nice. The price is quoted per chalet, you can access it by sedan depending of the condition of the road. We managed fine with the station wagon.

    Hi Grant,

    Mount Ceder is really one of those places where your expectations are exceeded by a mile.

    It is easily accessible by an ordinary sedan type car. The gravel road was well maintained. The accommodation is also really comfortable and clean, they have different options like Klibbokkop more expensive and luxurious.

    The fishing should be great under the right conditions, lots of structure and pristine water. There is also a restaurant, can be the basics and wood in a little shop area. The guy I dealt with name is Thomas. Relaxing and beautiful surroundings that will appeal to the SWAMBO's.

    I can highly recommend the spot. (Mount Ceder don't even know I did a report on their spot, totally objective.)

    Cheers

    Philip

    Well if the Swambo is a masseuse, well that should be alright I guess.....
    You been fishing here longer than me, so you have more "Cape Skillz" than me so......
