A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants & Businesses in Ceres, South Africa

General Information

Ceres, said to be named after the Roman goddess of agriculture, is located in the Cape Winelands region of the Western CapeSouth Africa.  Situated in a wonderfully fertile area, Ceres is one of South Africa's top producers of deciduous fruit.  Export quality fresh and dried fruit, fruit juices and natural spring water is produced here.

The road through Ceres became the main route to the north when diamonds were discovered in Kimberley in the late 1800’s. These days the route is known as the ‘Forgotten Highway’ and is fast developing as a tourist attraction.  The town is rich in history with many historical buildings to tell its story, however after an earthquake struck in 1969 many of the original buildings were damaged.

Winter brings with it snow providing a beautiful backdrop as the mountains become shrouded in white giving the area the nickname Little Switzerland.  The snow gives tourists some exciting activities to take part in, including skiing and snow-boarding.

Ceres offers many scenic mountain passes which provide activities such as 4x4'ing, hiking and mountain biking.  The landscape of fertile valley and rocky outcrops are unique and breath-taking.  The Ceres Valley has some of the best preserved San rock art in the country which can be viewed on guided hiking tours.
