The Langebaan lagoon is one of the core features of the West Coast National Park and is a RAMSAR wetland site of international importance. The Langebaan lagoon represents almost 30% of South Africa’s salt marshes.
The West Coast National Park is home to more than 250 bird species. During the summer months (December to February) about 70 000 birds migrate to the West Coast National Park from as far as Northern Russia.
Paleonthological and archeological features abound in the West Coast National Park and “Eve’s Footprints” found in the park was dated at 117 000 years old.
During the spring the strandveld is embroidered with a tapestry of multi-hued flowers that is as unique as it is idyllic.

The location is lovely, the accommodations very clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and the resident boomslang beautiful. It is a nice example of a seemingly successful community enterprise development and empowerment initiative.
