Amazing bit of Coastline! Need a 4x4 - be careful of the lizards that dash out in front of the car! Wild and unspoilt! Keep it this way and pick up own litter.

Trip to Gaansbaai and Walker Bay Nature Reserve. Magical cove. Both Gaansbaai from De Kelders and Walker Bay reserve are breathtakingly beautiful. Don't miss this if you are in the area. Jaw dropping beauty, expansive vistas of sea and sky.
