West Coast trips to the West Coast National Park with its spectacular carpet of flowers in the early spring, and Langebaan Lagoon where watersport options abound- kayaking, keelboat sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, Hobie Cats, deepwater fishing.

Journey to the wilderness area of the Cederberg with its ancient rock art, tranquil mountain streams and giant rock formations.

In late winter and spring travel an hour to the pretty town of Hermanus to view the huge Southern Right whales which bask directly below the towns cliffs.

Further along the same coast take a boat trip and try a Shark Cage Dive where you have a great chance of coming face to face with a Great White.
