Although there are some interesting mammal species in the West Coast National Park, such as red hartebeest and eland, the park is best known for birds and flowers. It is a fantastic place for seabirds and waders, especially in summer when the Palaearctic migrants arrive.In spring, the Postberg section of the park is open for a while to enable visitors to enjoy the spectacular flowers and there is a wonderful overnight hike. The lagoon offers great watersports, such as canoeing, snorkelling and, particularly windsurfing and kitesurfing.
West Coast National Park, Western Cape, South Africa
The park has very little in the way of accommodation, but your clients may like to rent a small, rather basic houseboat which is moored in a very beautiful setting at Churchhaven. Other than that, there is dormitory accommodation for large groups (usually schools). But that's really not a problem, as there are a number of good guest houses and restaurants in Langebaan town.
The park has not been specifically adapted to be wheelchair accessible but most people stay in their own cars, anyway. Please note that Postberg is not set-up for disabled visitors.
