Citrusdal is situated between the magnificent Kouebokkeveld and Swartberg Mountains, and is most certainly one of the most beautiful sights that a trip to the West Coast has to offer. Essentially a farming area, this town is one of the most viable agricultural areas in South Africa with it's enormous production of export citrus fruit.
Enjoy various activities in the area i.e. hiking, mountain biking, 4x4 trips, bird watching and horse riding amongst others. Although the towns' main source of income is derived from its legendary top-quality citrus production and citrus by-products, Citrusdal is fast becoming renowned for its wines, rooibos tea, buchu, honey, vegetables as well as such diverse farming activities as cattle and sheep.
In addition to the proclaimed Cederberg Wilderness area, the the serious nature-lover will not be disappointed with its rich compliment of fynbos and natural sandstone rock formations, such as the legendary Wolfberg Arch, well known to serious hikers throughout the world. See what is thought to be the oldest orange tree in the country (± 250 years), situated on the farm Hexrivier in the Citrusdal Valley. Astonishingly, the tree still bears fruit to this very day!
