Ex­plore South Africa’s sun-soaked coast

There is much to ex­plore along South Africa’s sun-soaked coast

African Times - - Front Page -

THERE’S noth­ing more amaz­ing than get­ting right up close to a thou­sand danc­ing and div­ing dol­phins, their splashes speck­ling your cam­era lens with wa­ter.

Noth­ing stops time like the ex­plo­sion of sound and feel­ing of pure awe as a South­ern Right whale breaches the blue ocean just me­ters away from you.

No mo­ment is more dream­like than stand­ing in frozen si­lence, wit­ness­ing baby loggerhead tur­tles hatch in the moon­light and make their awk­ward way to the ocean for the very first time.

These are the mo­ments that make South Africa spe­cial. And there are plenty more of them to be wit­nessed and ex­pe­ri­enced along our 2700km of coast­line.

It’s more than just the place where the cool At­lantic and warm In­dian Oceans meet.

It’s where the folk­lore of fish­ing com­mu­ni­ties is as charm­ing and real to­day as it ever was; where per­fect beaches lure you into stay­ing all day and the fresh­est flavours of the sea are piled onto your plate at sea­side restau­rants or right there on the sand, while the smell of the ocean fills your lungs.

Ex­plore South Africa’s nat­u­ral wet­lands where fauna and vege­ta­tion range from thick­ets and wood­lands to marshes, forests and reed: home to hippo, croc­o­diles, black rhino, thou­sands of fish and bird species that go on with life just like they have for thou­sands of years.

Be a wel­comed guest in their world, go hik­ing along fa­mous trails, cross­ing se­cret beaches, jump­ing over hid­den rock pools and stop­ping to watch ocean sun­sets with only the waves for com­pany.

Come ex­pe­ri­ence beach days that feel like they should never end and the finest beach-side ho­tels to spoil you when they even­tu­ally do. South Africa’s sun-soaked coast lies ready, all-year round, to share its se­crets, ad­ven­tures and lazy days with you – www. southafrica.net
