West Coast Tour

Driving all the way up the West Coast Route towards the North, the landscape changes dramatically into a wilderness of endless sands with a multitude of birds and a few small, lonely islands, battered by the relentless sea.

Highlights of the West Coast:

  • Rietvlei Wetland Reserve, one of the largest coastal wetlands in South Africa with over 200 species of birds.
  • SANCCOB, the world famous rescue centre for coastal birds.
  • Bloubergstrand - This area offers the most spectacular views of the world's most photographed icon, Table Mountain.
  • Beyond the breakers of Bloubergstrand Robben Island - Nelson Mandela's island prison - can be seen 13 kms offshore.
  • Yzerfontein, a small holiday and fishing village.
  • The town of Darling is best known for its Wild Flower and Orchid Show in September.
  • The Darling Flora Reserve and the Darling Tienie Versveld Flora Reserve are both worth visiting.
  • Hopefield is a quiet little town is in the centre of the fynbos area.
  • One of the finest natural harbours in the world, Saldanha Bay.
  • Just inland from the secluded harbour of Saldanha Bay one finds the azure waters of the Langebaan Lagoon, focal point of the West Coast National Park. Thousands of seabirds roost on sheltered islands, pristine golden beaches stretch endlessly into the early morning mist and brooding salt marshes are home to vast concentrations of migrant waders from the northern hemisphere. During the spring the strandveld is embroidered with a tapestry of multi-hued flowers, while in the Postberg section many antelope are to be seen in a setting that is as unique as it is idyllic.
  • 120,000 years ago a young woman walked down the wet dunes next to the Langebaan lagoon, perhaps in search of food. Nick-named 'Eve', her perfectly preserved footprints were found in 1995. This caused great excitement around the world, as it lends credence to the ‘Out of Africa’ evolutionary theory that man originated in Africa before moving north.
  • The small fishing village of Paternoster (Cape Columbine) has a beautiful, long, deserted beach to offer.
  • Around the corner is St Helena Bay which was discovered by Vasco da Gama in 1497.
  • Further north, Velddrif is situated at the mouth of the Berg River, and the estuary attracts large numbers of flamingos, spoonbills, avocets and glossy ibis.
  • The Rocher Pan Nature Reserve near Dwarskersbos is a must for bird watchers.
  • West Coast Ostrich Ranch - See the many aspects of these amazing birds, their glorious feathers and enormous eggs.
