Due to the rugged terrain, Wupperthal and the Cedarberg Mountains are completely unspoilt by tourism. The mountains are covered almost exclusively by pristine fynbos with some isolated Cedar trees remaining. Some rare fynbos endemics are found here such as the Snow Protea, rocket pincushion and the Clanwilliam Cedar.
The Cedarberg's largely dry and sunny climate make it ideal for visitors in winter and spring when Cape Town, and particularly the Garden Route can be rainy and cool. Though it is hot in the summer, there is always the coast nearby.

The mountains and lake offer a natural arena for adventure lovers with canoeing, river rafting, water-skiing, hiking, climbing and abseiling all available.

In Spring the area comes alive with masses of wild flowers after the Winter rains. Flower-lovers will delight in the superb carpets of wild flowers such as diasies, vygies as well as delicate species.
