Where To Go (Grilled): The West Coast
West Coast National Park
About 120kms north of Cape Town you’ll find this national park, famous for its birdlife and spring flowers. You may just see Eland, red hartebeest, bontebok, kudu, gemsbok, steenbok, mountain zebra, duiker and ostriches, as well as predators like the bat-eared fox, caracal, and Cape gray mongoose. What’s better than seeing beautiful animals and plants after smoking a fatty?
See the flowers in Postberg
One of the sections of the West Coast National Park, Postberg is world famous for its flowers that bloom in Spring. Only open during August and September in order to ensure the best possible conditions for the flower season, Postberg is as untouched an area as you could find. The animals here have also never learned to fear humans and will willingly come cruising right next to your car.
Learn to kite surf in Langebaan
The Langebaan lagoon, formed by rising and falling sea levels in prehistoric times, is unlike most other lagoons, which form where freshwater meets the sea. The langebaan lagoon is purely salt water and is the perfect place to learn to kite surf. There are also over 300 species of birds in the area, so don’t forget to bring your binoculars. Langebaan, although founded as a whaling station, is still a pitstop for the magnificent creatures, which can often be spotted cruising by.
