The Cape West Coast reaches from Bloubergstrand to the border of Namibia. It is a truly unique region of Southern Africa as a result of the fact that the region is unspoiled and largely undeveloped. The atmosphere in this region is very quaint and primitive. Many of the inhabitants make their living from the sea, the result being that many little fishing villages still exist.
It is not uncommon to arrive on a West Coast beach without encountering any other people. There is a warm hospitality wherever you visit and people are known to always greet and to have a great sense of humor.
SEASONAL FLOWER TOUR (AUGUST-OCTOBER)
The West Coast has limited rainfall, however, depending on weather patterns, the region normally has some rainfall towards the end of July / beginning of August. When the sun makes its appearance, magic happens. Most of the area is covered in a carpet of indigenous flowers in incredible colors.
