Your 4-night, 5-day tour will give you another perspective of Cape Town. The West coast is a hidden gem filled with delightful little towns like Saldanha, Paternoster, St. Helena Bay, Hopefield, Darling, and Langebaan to name a few… The white sand beaches surrounding the clear waters of the Langebaan Lagoon are one of the main attractions of Langebaan. The mild climate and protected waters of the lagoon make Langebaan popular for sailing, kayaking, kitesurfing, and fishing, and the town offers numerous holiday facilities for water sport enthusiasts.
