West Coast Experience

West Coast Experience

This experience takes place on a Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday

On this one day experience we will travel north from Cape Town through Bloubergstrand with unforgettable views of Table Mountain across Table Bay and drive along the coastal route visiting the West Coast National Park which is famous for indigenous flowers and free roaming antelope. Bird-watchers love this area where more than 300 species of birds could be found. Whales could sometimes also be spotted.

Eve’s Footprint - the oldest known footprint of a modern human, was discovered in the park on the banks of the Langebaan Lagoon in 1995. The fossil footprint is dated at about 117 000 years old.

Close to the town, at Langebaanweg, is the West Coast Fossil Park – the only fossil park in South Africa. The remains of Africa’s only bear have also been discovered here, along with the fossils of 200 other species and if there is enough time you can enjoy an informative tour of a fossil dig and perhaps hunt for your own fossils.

The absolute highlight of this experience is our visit to DIE STRANDLOPER [which historically refers to the Strandlopers, a term for Khoisan derived people who lived by hunting and gathering food along the beaches of South-Western Africa].Die Strandloper is a is very casual seafood Restaurant on the beach where you will experience true South African cuisine and hospitality and eat and drink to your heart’s content. The menu consists of an almost 10 course meal mostly of seafood including crayfish [lobster] and mussels, but any other possible taste is catered for.

Taking the same route back south you could reminisce about this unforgettable experience as we drive towards Cape Town with the Table Mountain silhouette in front of us. Truly an unforgettable experience to tell your friends about .
