Just inland from the secluded harbour of Saldanha Bay, one finds the azure waters of the Langebaan Lagoon, the focal point of the West Coast National Park. Thousands of seabirds roost on sheltered islands, pristine golden beaches stretch endlessly into the early morning mist and brooding salt marshes are home to vast concentrations of migrant waders from the northern hemisphere.
The largest concentration of mammals is in the Postberg Reserve, but this is only open to the public during flower season. However, mammals are found throughout the rest of the reserve. Eland, red hartebeest, Cape grysbok, caracal and rock hyrax are some of the species to look out for. Visitors should also keep an eye on the Atlantic Ocean for passing whales and dolphins. – From www.sa-venues.com
