DESCRIPTION
This area is renowned for its abundance in seafood (crayfish, fish, mussels and abalone) and glorious wild flowers during springtime. A beautiful stretch of coastline with gorgeous, cosy beaches awaits your arrival. The town Saldanha is the largest natural harbour along the South African coastline and is well known as an export harbour for iron ore. This town is also home to one of South Africa’s largest commercial fishing fleets, the South African Military Academy and SAS Saldanha, a naval training base. Langebaan is a resort town where the blue Langebaan Lagoon stretches for 17km parallel to the Atlantic Ocean. The lagoon will delight water sport enthusiasts with activities varying from water skiing to spear fishing and birdwatchers join the queue: flamingos, sandpipers and plovers are some of the feathered friends who like to feed on the shrimp and prawn living in the mud banks. The Postberg Private Nature Reserve (open August and September) is not only home to spectacular wild flowers, but also hosts several antelope and game species, including zebra, kudu, gemsbok, blue and black wildebeest and eland.
