We allow for 2.5 hours on this leg of the Crayfish Trail. Wind your way along the beautiful single track and wooden paths hedged by fynbos, toward the lookout point. Our circular route takes one along the beach and back to your cabin.

Guests are transported to Vensterklip to enjoy lunch and explore Verlorenvlei, a protected wetland and Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA). There is an optional walk to ‘The Vensterklip’. We then explore the small fishing and surfing town of Elands Bay. Your guide will show you Baboon Point, a provincial heritage site, along with the caves and rock art left by the San.
