The beach is a blue flag beach and has been rated as a Top 10 Beach by the UK Sunday Times as well as Top Beach in South Africa by readers of the local Sunday Times. Camps Bay offers a wide range of activities including shopping, hiking, surfing and swimming.

Tulbagh:
The charming historical town of Tulbagh is situated in the Witzenberg Municipal area, near Wolseley, Prince Alfred’s Hamlet, Gouda and Ceres, in the Winelands of the Boland in the Western Cape Province, South Africa. The town is situated on the northern end of the beautiful and fertile Tulbagh valley. The valley is almost completely surrounded by majestic mountain ranges – the Obiqua mountains to the west, the towering Winterhoek on the northern end and the Witzenberg on the eastern side of the valley. The Great Winterhoek mountains tower 2077 metres above sea level and are picturesquely snow capped in winter. A diverse flora is abundant all over the valley and in the mountains.

Robertson Winelands
Robertson Winelands

Robertson:
Robertson sometimes referred to as the ‘muscadel and brandy capital’ of the country was founded in 1853 and named after Dutch Reformed minister Reverend Dr W. Robertson. With the rich alluvial soil and plenty of water from the Breё River the new town flourished and was well known for its wagon making and cabinet and clock makers. Nowadays the town is known for its wines, brandy, sherry, liqueurs, world renowned racehorse breeding farms and fruit farms. There are many other attractions to explore around Robertson, from a river cruise, to a mountain hike, to outdoor picnics and to exploring the rich historical sites.

Oudtshoorn:
Oudtshoorn is the tourist capital of the Little Karoo. The town is famous for its ostrich farms, where one can view the ostriches; ride on the back of one, purchase their feathers, shells, leatherwear made from their hides and even savour their unique steaks at one of the restaurants in the town. Ostriches are the world’s biggest birds and can grow to a height of two metres and a weight of about 150kg. The famous Cango Caves with their giant stalagmites and stalactites are situated +-30km to the north of the town and are well worth a visit.

Addo National Park Elephant
Addo National Park Elephant

Addo:
The park is a large reserve (120 000 ha or 296 500 acre) situated in the Sundays River Valley. The original elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1931, when only eleven elephants remained in the area. Today this finely tuned ecosystem is sanctuary to many more elephants, a vast number of Cape buffalo, black rhino, a variety of antelope species, as well as the flightless dung beetle – found almost exclusively in Addo. They’re regularly encountered in the park, especially after rain, rolling their ball of dung to some suitable spot where it will be buried, a way to recycle nutrients.

St. Francis Bay:
St. Francis Bay boasts a temperate climate of warm summers and mild winters, a magnificent beach providing safe bathing, nature reserves, a deep water harbour and fantastic surfing. The Kromme River, navigable for 10 km, twists and winds its way down to a marina. The Bay – a gently sloping beach provides safe bathing as well as some of the finest rock and surf angling on the East Coast. The bay itself is world famous for its waves and is frequented by surfers from all over South Africa and overseas.
