A rooibos tea-tourism industry is brewing in the Cederberg
Aron Hyman finds out what's potting in and around the 'rooibos capital of the world' in the Western Cape.

If you lie down in the Cederberg and look at the stars, you could imagine the Earth around you as a reflection of the heavens.

Clanwilliam Development Partnership

We are very proud to be part of the Leadership in Local Governance programme from Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy, with our Mentor Prof Deon Pretorius for 2021.
The main objective of this training programme is to improve local and institutional governance. This can be achieved by making municipalities more equitable and inclusive. During this training programme, participants will work on change projects that aim to improve their municipality's ability to be fair, inclusive, transparent and accountable. By strengthening the capacity of the participating teams and the networks available to them, this program aims to promote democracy and end poverty in all its forms in our partner communities.
Furthermore, the programme hopes to deliver:
- Gained skills and abilities to communicate and advocate on issues of inclusive governance
-Expanded local, regional, national and international network.
The countries involved are: Kenya, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia.
We are a non-partisan cross-sectoral platform to mobilize joint action around development projects in Clanwilliam.
Our mission is to strengthen the ability of all partners to deliver on their respective mandates through collaborative action.

Bokkoms - Hennie Visser

“Julle mense hier aan die Weskus is darem glad met die mond,” Merk ’n toeris op. “Hoe is dit dat julle so slim is?”
“Mavrou, dis oor die spesiale ou vissie wat ons hier eet, dat ons so slim is. Ons noem hom ’n bokkom. Mavrou kan een kry, maar hulle is duuuuuur. R50 vir enetjie.”
“Ek sal een neem.” Die toeris het die vissie een byt gegee en toe sê sy: “Maar dis net ’n gedroogde harder!”
“Sien! Mevrou is klaar slimmer!”
