You may wake up to the noise of penguins at the nearby Boulders beach. You can visit and swim with the penguins at this fabulous beach near Simons Town. The sea is cold but the experience is unique and great. Then skip over to the Atlantic seaboard side and go for an walk on the endless Noordhoek beach. The brave ones my opt to saddle up a horse and go for a ride. The rest can go for wine tasting at Cape Point Winery
Now get your camera ready before driving over the picturesque Chapman’s Peak towards Hout bay. This is one of the most spectacular roads in the world and never disappoint. Stop along the way for a picnic or just enjoy the stunning views. In Hout bay you can grab lunch at the and if you pass through on a sunday the don't miss the Market. Alternatively grab something to eat in Cape Town.
Time to get off the beaten track and explore some fab African coastline and rocky scenery. Aim for Yzerfontein and where the campsite next to the 16 Mile beach await.
If you are lucky enough to be here in August and September then consider a detour via the Postberg section of the West Coast National Park. It is only open during this amazing flower season and it also contains zebra, wildebeest and gemsbok. Rather than travelling on the main N7, one can also take a small detour via Darling and the marine lagoon of Langebaan. Pack a picnic and head for one of the picture-perfect coves near Preekstoel and Kraalbaai, where the strikingly azure waters gently lap white sands and brilliant green succulents.
Your next stop is Paternoster which is a remote and quiet old picturesque fishing village located approximately 2 hours from Stellenbosch or 1.5 hours from Cape Town on the West Coast of South Africa with some great little restaurants and a chilled old world vibe. Famous for its crayfish (November - April) and whitewashed fisherman cottages, a stay in Paternoster is perfect for any traveller looking to get off the beaten tourist path and experience a taste of the real South Africa. To reach here stay on the R27 past the West Coast National Park and Langebaan, then take the R45 west to Vredenberg. Pick up any supplies in Vredenberg before continuing on the 16km road to Paternoster. In Paternoster you will find a few gift shops, a small shop selling all the basics, a liquor shop, a pub and some fabulous restaurants.
Just a few kms west up the road from Paternoster you will find Tities Bay within the 263 hectare Cape Columbine Nature Reserve - this is a Lekker Camper favourite campsite. The area is aptly named for some interesting rock formations above the dunes. It is basic, barren, rocky and wild but if you want to get away from people and be right against the sea to relax then this is the place to come. The water is often freezing, but with views like this who cares! There is no electricity here but if you have taken a solar package then you can easily stay at Tities Bay for 2 nights or more if the weather is on your side. There are heaps of places to park up your campervan here and there is no need to book in advance, but if you want to go over a weekend or holiday then arrive early as it can get very busy.
Veldrif is a "chip and a put" and this is where the Berg River meets the ocean. You haven't lived until you had bokkoms and coffee in Bokkom Laan, Velddrif. Grab bokkoms at one of the fishing sheds and grab a coffee at Columbine Co. Then just sit back and watch the world go by. The wine tasting stop for the day is Orc le Rack. This is a 100% organic wine farm with excellent MCC.
The stop for the night is 22 Waterfalls just outside Porterville. The receptionist can be a bit rude, but the camping is great. You camp under the trees right next to the river. The hike up the waterfalls is well worth it and the views are spectacular.
Stellenbosch is the second oldest European established town in South Africa known for its stunning oak lined trees, historical buildings, cute shops and marvellous restaurants and cafes. There are an abundance of wine estates to visit, so check out the wine route map in your campervan or visit a local tourism office and decide where to stop as you go along. Enjoy a leisurely lunch with a great view at one of the wine estate restaurants such as Dornier or Rust en Vrede or stop-off in Stellenbosch central for a selection of quaint cafes, pubs and bistros - Basic Bistro, Craft (good beer tasting of local brews) and Fat Butcher are a few of our current favourites in the centre of Stellenbosch town. The scenery all around Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Somerset West is spectacular. In the late afternoon we love Hidden Valley or Waterford (near Mooiberg strawberry farm where you can pick strawberries in season) for a cheese platter, wine tasting and sundowners (you may see the Lekker Camper crew there!) followed by a tasty braai back at the campsite. If you stay at Mountain Breeze campsite over a weekend then be sure to pop into the close by Root 44 market (open Saturday and Sunday) or the Blaauklippen market (open Sunday) to sample some local food, listen to live music, chill next to the vineyards with the locals and do some gift shopping
No Electricity - no problem. Let the Sun keep those craft beers ice cold and your meat refrigerated. The solar panels will ensure all cameras & iPads stay charged and the salad stays fresh.
