SLOW Magazine - - Edition 51 -

The Cape West Coast and im­me­di­ate sur­rounds en­joy more sunny days through­out the year than any other coast­line in South Africa, and the list of things to see and do whilst ex­plor­ing this area is seem­ingly end­less.

Visit the warm wa­ter springs in Citrus­dal; go on a guided seashore walk in Lam­bert’s Bay; go zip-lin­ing at the Pieke­nier­skloof Moun­tain Re­sort; take a game drive at the Thali Thali Game Lodge; do some wine tast­ing at many dif­fer­ent cel­lars such as Groote Post; drink beer at Dar­ling Brew craft brew­ery; savour some oys­ters at Blue Bay Lodge; treat your­self to some fine-din­ing at Leeto Restau­rant at the Strand­loper Ocean Bou­tique Ho­tel; learn all about the San and do a San Guided Tour at !Khwa ttu; play golf at The Lodge at At­lantic Beach; go bird­watch­ing; go sail­ing on the Langebaan lagoon; do some fish­ing; and pop in at farm stalls like the Kar­doe­sie Coun­try Stop and the new Route 27 Roost­erkoek hub.

The per­fect way to ex­pe­ri­ence this beau­ti­ful part of the world, with its warm peo­ple, rich tapestry of cul­tures, and all its at­trac­tions is through a unique road trip, called the West Coast Way. It is South Africa’s ‘Road Trip with The Most Twists’ and each twist, or loop, is in it­self a cir­cu­lar, self­drive themed route. The op­tions in­clude the Trac­tor, Berg, Foodie, Cul­tural, Wild, and Cape Way Routes - all of which are de­signed to show­case the myr­iad of at­trac­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties that are on of­fer.

Vis­i­tors can “mix and match” the stops along the var­i­ous dif­fer­ent routes – tai­lor mak­ing a road trip that per­fectly suits your time con­straints, bud­gets, in­ter­ests etc.

“Whether you are cater­ing for young chil­dren, fussy teens, adrenalin junkies, art lovers, food­ies, na­ture en­thu­si­asts or sports lovers – there is some­thing for ev­ery­one,” ex­plains Car­men Lerm, founder and CEO of West Coast Way who con­cep­tu­alised, cre­ated and launched the ‘Road Trip with the Most Twists’ and its var­i­ous routes.

“We care­fully hand-picked each of the at­trac­tions, ac­tiv­i­ties and des­ti­na­tions fea­tured along the six dif­fer­ent West Coast Way routes so that we could en­sure there was some­thing fun and unique for ev­ery mem­ber of the fam­ily.”
