The town of Ceres was named for the Roman god of agriculture, and when you visit you will not question why.
I often pass through the town on the way to Klondyke Cherry Farm or Matroosberg Private Nature Reserve in the east at Bo-Swaarmoed, or when travelling back from the Cederberg to the north via Gydo Pass. Ceres is about 150km from Cape Town and can be reached by travelling via the N1 R43 and R46 through the historic Mitchell’s Pass.
