West Coast
Enjoy a morning breakfast before heading out to Paternoster, an area whose name translated as ‘Our Father’ is derived from the prayers of shipwrecked Portuguese sailors. Visit the last manned lighthouse ever constructed, Cape Columbine Lighthouse, which rests along a windswept coastline within the Columbine Nature Reserve. From inside the lighthouse, you can get amazing views of the Britannia reef and Atlantic. The cape is located on a rocky outcrop known as Castle Rock where, during the right seasons, dolphins and whales can potentially be spotted. Delve into the traditional fishing town of Paternoster before heading to the West Coast Fossil Park for a guided tour and finally spend the afternoon back in Langebaan for an afternoon at leisure. During August and September a visit to the Postberg Section of the West Coast National Park will be included to showcase the vibrant carpet of flowers that bloom during this period.
