The West Coast

The Cape West Coast boasts one of the most unique landscapes in the world with wide open places, big skies and a biodiversity not found anywhere else in the world. This brings in visitors from all over the globe each year for its spectacular flower season. This region next to Cape Town has been home to the Khoi and the San for thousands of years. It was only in 1497 that Vasco da Gama landed on its shores at St Helena. With its rich marine life and natural resources, the region was also the lifeblood of the early settlement at the Cape. The West Coast showcases the best collection of tertiary vertebrate fossils in the world, as well as the history of our oldest human ancestors and the Khoi and San. This FREE printed and downloadable guide will give you by far the best information, history and geology on this region and its uniqueness.
