The Cape West Coast is a distinctive and unusual region which starts only one hours' drive north from Cape Town. It offers unique sandveld vegetation, picturesque fishing villages, long sandy beaches and huge bird colonies. Its unique brand of hospitality is typified by its rustic open-air seafood restaurants, summing up the refreshing charm of the West Coast of South Africa.
One of the delights of the West Coast is that it is little visited compared to busier Hermanus and the Garden Route. So you can find kilometres of empty beach for evening strolls. We recommend basing yourself either at the quietly beguiling little fishing village of Paternoster, if you are seeking utter tranquility, or the lagoon town of Langebaan. (Langebaan has become one of the best places for kite-surfing in the Cape.)
We arrange trips to more than 100+ destinations throughout the African continent.
