Welcome to the West Coast National Park

Hike the Steenbok Trail and dine alongside a flock of wading birds at the West Coast National Park

The West Coast National Park offers up more than just overwhelming natural beauty. There are new discoveries around every corner: you could hike the breathtaking Steenbok trail or take your family out for a self-drive game tour of the park. Plus, the Geelbek Restaurant is open and ready to welcome you back for sit-down meals. 

IT'S A HIKERS DREAM
The one-day Steenbok Trail will be the first hiking trail to open to the public on 1 August. This 13.9km hike loops around the Postberg section and circles back to end in the Tsaarsbank. It's approximately five hours long without breaks so come prepared with plenty of water and sunscreen. To avoid overcrowding, the park can only allow 20 people in at a time. To book your spot you can contact the Geelbek Information Centre on 022 707 9902/3.  

SELF-DRIVE GAME TOURS
The park is home to hundreds of game species, which you can view from the safety of your vehicle. Keep your eyes peeled for anything from the smallest tortoise to the giant eland. If you're lucky, you might even see an African wildcat, which is known to be active during the early mornings and afternoons.  

DINE AT A HERITAGE SITE FLOCKED BY BIRDS
The Geelbek Restaurant sits right at the end of the Langebaan Lagoon where hundreds of diverse bird species flock to wade in its still waters. The restaurant building dates back to the 1700s and is a heritage site. They serve up classic South African flavours. Warm-up with the Cape Malay Chicken Curry or try their Ostrich Burger with tangy onion marmalade.
