Fires are very dangerous for every living creature, but in the Cederberg it can really be challenging to get under control.
With mountains surrounding the farm 360 degrees a fire can last anything from a week to months going over and back on the mountains through the Fynbos.
The Suikerbos, after which the farm is called, can catapult a protea burning up to a kilometer away because of its high sugar contents.
We are very strict with our fire policy and expect every camper not to move their braai drum or leave a fire unattended.
Suikerbossie is blessed with farm workers and managers who not only know fire, but knows their land and wind. Trained and capable to put out a fire the Onderhoek of Kouebokkeveld can fight a fire and go to bed knowing it is dead.
