Bring your Wild card and binoculours along for a visit to the West Coast National Park, which was established in 1985.  Even if birding is not your thing, come anyway, just to be immersed in nature and the sheer beauty of this beautiful lagoon.  It is magical and only 150 km Cape Town. But … If birding is your thing, then there are 5 hides in the National Park to choose from.  The West Coast Bird Club (see their Facebook page) have put together a comprehensive brochure called ‘Guide to West Coast Birding Hotspots’ which is available at local tourist offices and gives tips on best viewing times in relation to tide times.

Hide A              Seeberg hide

Hide B & C       Geelbek hides

Hide D              Abrahamskraal hide

Hide E               Tsaarbank hide
