Dive into West Coast Wonder

10 Jan 2024

If you love being in the wild or are a water baby, this region is for you. The West Coast is truly a remarkable destination that offers a unique and diverse natural environment. 

CapeNature's Bird Island reserve is a gem within this region, providing visitors with a close up view of the Cape Gannet in its natural habitat. The reserve not only offers breath-taking views but also provides educational opportunities through its museum and informative movie room.

Just as you lose yourself in nature while taking all this in, the Groot Winterhoek Wilderness and Cederberg Wilderness nature reserves will offer you a diverse range of experiences that will leave you in awe of the West Coast's natural and cultural wonders. This region is rich in historic artwork and crafty rock formations which take one back eons. Offering a host of activities such as hiking trails, mountain-biking, donkey cart adventures, bouldering at Rocklands, long and short walks and picnic spots one is spoilt for choice!

That is not all, Rocherpan with its eco-friendly cabins, designed with sustainability in mind, uninterrupted from load shedding, provides a comfortable and modern space to relax and immerse oneself in the beauty of the surrounding environment. The reserve's commitment to being one with nature is evident in its rustic cabins, which blend harmoniously with the natural surroundings. Exploring the sandy walking paths within Rocherpan leads you to a private and secluded beach. This allows visitors to enjoy the coastal beauty and take in the calming rhythm of the ocean waves. The landscapes, with their open blue skies and natural elements, provide a source of inspiration and invite reflection and positive thinking.

Plan that summer vacation with CapeNature in mind and you will not be disappointed. Book now and relax at your home away from home.
