What you'll do

We will head up or down the coast from the town of Paternoster along the beach or through the coastal Fynbos looking for signs and actual encounters with fauna and flora. We may see sea birds, seals, bones of sea mammals, whales, and certainly beautiful and spectacular scenery. The dry coastal bush is rich in life and living animals and we have a 99% chance of stepping over the Cape Tortoise. The guided hike will normally be about a two hour round experience but for those who are fitter and willing we will venture further. The area is rich in history and culture and we will definitely stop to engage with the local fishermen and their stories. Guests have the option of longer beach hikes from Paternoster to St. Helena Bay or Paternoster to Saldanha Bay. Learn about shipwrecks and tragedies, and visit some isolated areas of this rugged coastline.
