West Coast National Park
Drive through a coastal park
We move in a Nature that stretches along the desert and the Atlantic Ocean. If necessary, a hike across the dunes is an experience only with a guide. It is also very special for Bird Lovers here, we must remember to bring our binoculars.
The best time to travel is in August and September, when the wild flowers bloom, a flower festival lights up here! The flowers have their own time between 10 a.m. and 4.30 p.m. because they follow the sun and close their flowers when the sun moves.
A small white-framed fishing village. A great beach stretches into the horizon with fishermen selling fresh sea food every day. By the way, Paternoster is particularly known for its lobsters. Good to try them here and there is a completely authentic little restaurant called Wolfgat for foodies too, which requires advanced booking. Paternoster is an excellent spot to stay overnight.
A visit to a San village
In! Kawa ttu you can visit a San culture center (San = Bushmen) for half a day. The village was founded to preserve the legacy, and promote the San culture. The San are our natives of the Cape, comparable to the Maoris and Aborigines.
It is good to support this project and learn from its culture. How they lived from the land, used medicinal herbs and also their Transdances.
