Our Two Nights at Jamaka Chaletes,
we were prepared,
knowing there was a kitchen with fridge,
made life easier.
night one, Boerewors [ farmers' sausage ]
night two, T bone steak
with Rec Cape Wine and juicy Cape Fruits,
peaches, nectarines and apples
plus a few Passion fruit from the farm
Favorite Dish: In the adjoining chalet,
i was invited to join them for a drink,
took my own bottle,
but had a taste of their potjiekos
i.e layered foods in a three legged cast iron pot - top marks
to the chef
met them again in Eersterivier outside Cape Town

South Africa has and is undergoing changes,
that is since the "democratic" elections in April 27th 1994
and subsequent change of power
There have been changes, in who is who and what is what

Unless you're planning to fast for the duration of your stay, make sure that you bring all of your food and drink with you if you're staying in the chalets or the camp site at Sandrif.
If you haven't made a plant, there is no such thing as popping out of a meal or a drink here, as the nearest one would be about 90 minutes away on a challenging road that you'd be a lunatic to drive in the dark. And - unlike most other self catering accommodation of this sort whose stores usually stock a basic range of provisions - Sandrif's store stocks little more than a few dried goods and snacks.
Drinkwise, then it depends on what your preferred tipple is. If you're a beer drinker like me, then you're absolutely out of luck and if you didn't bring it with you, then you'll be going 'cold turkey' for the duration of your stay. However, if you are a wine lover, then you're in luck, and can buy your beverage right from the cellar door!
I can't recommend their methode champenoise highly enough!

Google Map of Cederberg Private Cellar South Africa’s highest winery at 1000m Above sea level, where the unique cool continental climate of the high-growing vineyards is ideal for the production of Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. This terroir is also perfect for the slow ripening red cultivars like Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
2006 Veritas DOUBLE GOLD - CEDERBERG SHIRAZ
Winemaker David Nieuwoudt describes this wine as unique in that "it contains all the elements of a top Shiraz in one glass".
2006 Veritas DOUBLE GOLD - FIVE GENERATIONS CHENIN BLANC
Delicate floral and honeyed whispers. Lime with some biscuit aromas. A fat juicy palate, fragrant rich in ripe oaky / lees character. Full length with good acid backbone. Concentrated, structured for longevity.

Favorite thing: Cederberg offers so many opprontunities to click away,
whilst waiting for Luanne and the Ceonservancy man to return
from the hike up the Cracks and to the Arch.
beofre and after i saw the moving sun create
so many variations to the weathered rock faces.
using Zoomorama, one has free storage of the big MBs
here is my Cederberg multi photo page link
Fondest memory: being with Nature.
for the hike up along the paths and rocks,
we need to be fit
with strong knees too.
