West Coast National Park, Langebaan, Open-Air Seafood Restaurant with private guide


The Cape West Coast reaches from Bloubergstrand to the border of Namibia. It is a truly unique region of Southern Africa as a result of the fact that the region is unspoilt and largely undeveloped. The atmosphere in this region is very quaint and primitive. Many of the inhabitants make their living from the sea, the result being that many little fishing villages still exist.
It is not uncommon to arrive on a West Coast beach without encountering any other people. There is a warm hospitality wherever you visit and people are known to always greet and to have a great sense of humour.

SEASONAL FLOWER TOUR (AUGUST-OCTOBER)
The West Coast has limited rainfall, however depending on weather patterns, the region normally has some rainfall towards end of July /beginning of August. When the sun makes its appearance, magic happens. Most of the area is covered in a carpet of indigenous flowers in incredible colours.

Itinerary

Our tour starts in the Cape Town CBD, and we head north through Milnerton, the greater Blouberg area and Melkbosstrand. We continue north and you will note that the vegetation is mostly fynbos and the landscape is quite flat.
A few km north we stop off at Khwa Ttu, where we spend some time learning about the local San (commonly known as bushmen)
From here we continue north until we reach the West Coast National Park. 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.
Thousands of seabirds roost on sheltered islands, pristine white sandy beaches stretch endlessly into the early morning mist and brooding salt marshes are home to vast concentrations of migrant waders from the northern hemisphere.
The West Coast has limited rainfall, however depending on whether patterns, the region normally has some rainfall towards end of July /beginning of August. When the sun makes its appearance, magic happens.
