Visit local places of interest. Here are a few to whet your appetite.
Wheatlands Lodge provides an excellent launching pad for day trips that cover the area. Take a day in the sun on the beach at Struisbaai or Arniston, visit the ‘southern most tip’ at Agulhas, enjoying a traditional meal of fish & chips at L’Agulhas, or check out the fascinating museums in Swellendam and Bredasdorp. A short drive to Napier provides a pleasant outing to see things like the Toy Museum and the stained glass factory.
Nature lovers and birders will have more than enough to keep them occupied with places to visit like ‘Die Mond’, De Hoop Nature Reserve, Agulhas National Park, Heuningberg Nature Reserve and the Bontebok Park to view the incredible flora and fauna found in this area. The rarely sighted gull billed tern has been spotted in this area.
