Accommodation: Driehoek Guest Farm, Cederberg
Leaving Eland’s Bay we stop at Lambert’s Bay, the seafood hot spot of the West Coast!
Lambert’s Bay is known as the Diamond of the West Coast, and the crayfish mecca of South Africa. Alluvial diamonds are also brought up from the ocean floor, thanks to those crazy, leathery local divers.
Delightful views of dolphins, whales and the ever-entertaining seals at the internationally acclaimed Bird Island where tens of thousands of seabirds create a deafening cacophony, not forgetting the lush stretches of wild field flowers that are most beautiful during spring. On our way to the Cederberg we visit a cooperative “Rooibos” farm where the famous SA tea is grown.
This unique health-enhancing Rooibos plant is only found in the area. Then a visit through the historical town of Clanwilliam which is situated on the Olifants river.
Finally, we enter the Cederberg with our accommodation situated appropriately for our hike tomorrow.
Barbecue dinner under an African sky, spot the Southern Cross anyone.
