The Republic of South Africa with its rapid growing population is not richly endowed with natural resources such as water and cultivable land, yet 130 000 hectares of this scarce land was set aside by the authorities in the northern parts of the Western Cape province as the Cederberg Wilderness Area. It is obvious that this action was not appreciated by everyone as there will always be a clash of interests between the conservationists and the agriculturists on the utilization of the natural resources. Reference will be made to those factors to consider in the conservation of the area by describing its geographical area, reasons for its conservation and of the actions taken by the authorities to achieve the conservation goals.
