The Rietvlei wetland, a freshwater lake in Milnerton, is both a birder's paradise and a fantastic place to take part in watersport. It features an abundance of flowers during the spring season.

The Rietvlei is about 560 hectares in size and in spring and summer is home to a huge variety of birds, many of them waders. A bird census has shown that 102 species can be found at Rietvlei, of which 70 are regularly there. A bird hide comfortably seats 20 enthusiasts. 

There is a network of walking trails. Watersport enthusiasts love windsurfing and sailing on the vlei, and it is also a popular picnic area with places to braai (barbecue).


Cango Caves

29km from Oudtshoorn, at the head of the picturesque Cango Valley, lies the spectacular underground wonder of the Klein Karoo - the Cango Caves. Situated in a limestone ridge parallel to the well-known Swartberg Mountains, you will find the finest dripstone caverns, with their vast halls and towering formations.

Southern Suburbs

The Southern Suburbs are a tourist’s delight. The area, which stretches from the slopes of the Table Mountain range to the False Bay coast, offers natural attractions and a vibrant nightlife.

St James

Just a little further on from Cape Town’s well-known Muizenberg beach is St James. Home to a cluster of well-known and oft-photographed bathing boxes on the beach, St James is a picturesque area that offers beachgoers respite from the westerly wind.

Llandudno and Sandy Bay

Only 18km from the Cape Town city centre, an arc of fine white sand gives away the secluded location of one of Cape Town’s most beautiful beaches, Llandudno.
