50 Shades of Venice
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.”
