It’s no secret that we LOVE our space as much as we adore a good road trip. So, our first top thing to do is to…
1. Go on South Africa’s road trip with the most twists: West Coast Way.
The “twists” referred to, feature the six uniquely themed interlocking routes: Foodie, Culture, Wild, Tractor, Berg and Cape Way Routes. Each route takes visitors to a selection of unique towns, locations and attractions. To find the routes, go to this link: https://www.westcoastway.co.za/west-coast-way-routes/
One of the best ways to get great photos is to go on a road trip! You’re unlikely to be bored on the West Coast Way – South Africa’s road trip with the most twists.
2. Stop and stay at Thali Thali Game Lodge
At Thali Thali Game Lodge on the Foodie Route the food platters of Weskus food, not to mention Sunday buffet, will attest to the warm hospitality of the region. Those who are not seduced by stoep sitting can attempt to hone their skills with a bow and arrow or go on a game drive exploring this wildlife reserve.
3. Take it slow
Spend a happy hour or two browsing the tiny lane of Bokkomlaan in Velddrif on the Berg Route. Visit artist Marina Clunie’s River Studio filled with canvases of Berg River life. Time for lunch? Go to Ek & Djy Vissery, overlooking the Berg River. For padkos and tasty gifts pop in at Pelican Post for olives, cheese, ice cream paired with kayak and boat trip rentals. Go on a cruise with Cracklin’ Rosie.

4. Top up your padkos
“Local is lekker” comes to life in Riebeek Valley on the Tractor Route. Globally awarded olives, olive oil, wine and art are created in the ‘wedding valley’ of South Africa.
Find by the barrelful lekker padkos, delightful gifts or sit down (inside or outside) to enjoy wine and olive tastings at Kloovenburg Wine and Olive Estate. The delightful charcuterie board, which allows you to make your own selection of freshly baked bread, cured meat, cheeses and finger foods, is definitely a memorable highlight of the West Coast Way road trip. Trip Tip: You may bump into World Rugby Player of the Year Pieter-Steph du Toit.
