This day trip breakaway from the city will help you relax, unwind, and rediscover nature.
The Cape West Coast reaches all the way from Bloubergstrand to the border of Namibia. It is a truly unique region of Southern Africa as a result of being largely undeveloped with wide open spaces and many of the inhabitants still making their living from the sea in the many small and quaint fishing villages.
Situated 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. The famous wild flowers of Postberg in the West Coast National Park can be viewed in spring during the months of August and September. When the Cape Strandveld wildflowers are in full bloom, they are a breath-taking sight, decorating the fields with textured weaves of colour as far as the eye can see. Many annual events are planned around the wildflower spectacle, such as the Darling Wildflower Show, exhibiting the largest variety of South African indigenous flowers. The West Coast National Park is a must-see place for every eco-tourist, with rich fauna and flora, Cape fynbos and lots of natural history to discover.
The old adage goes that it is not just about the destination but also about the journey.
