Western Cape Galleries

 

Koue Bokkevled

 

The Koue Bokkeveld lies north of Ceres, and is most easily accessed via the longest road between two towns in South Africa, this being the Road between Ceres and Calvinia. Just off this road is a little birders paradise in Skitterykloof with the Peerboomskloof pass providing access.

 

 

 

West Coast National Park

 

The town of Langebaan, and the West Coast National Park main attraction is the large Langebaan lagoon.   This area is amazingly rich in birdlife, and often attracts rarities.

 

 

 

Rooi-els

 

The little town of Rooi-els has one big attraction for birdwatchers and this is reliable the accessibility to a Western Cape endemic bird, the Cape Rockjumper.  The beauty of this little settlement is not only in the birding, but also the beautiful landscape of mountain and ocean.

 

 

 

Harmanus and surrounds

 

This gallery centres around the sights and birding in Hermanus, but also covers the surrounding areas, such as Bot Rivier, Karweiders Kraal and Hemel-en-aarde Valley.

 

 

 

Prince Albert and Swartberg Pass

 

The Swarberg mountains is the stunning backdrop to Prince Albert and surrounds. This area is all about landscapes and winding roads, and the Meiringspoort and Swartberg passes must be on the “to drive” list.
