Make water sports, safe waters and wildlife along a turquoise lagoon your ideal life style and destination.
Almost year round sunshine, safe waters and reliable winds make Langebaan paradise for water sports lovers – particularly kite surfers, wind surfers, kayaking, yachtsmen, water skiers and fishermen. The tidal mud flats of the lagoon also attract thousands of migratory birds every year, and
resident species are prolific and include greater and lesser flamingos. The world’s largest breeding colony of black harriers also occurs in the area. Langebaan is an internationally acclaimed Ramsar Site for its importance as a wetland.
The picturesque, modern town borders onto the scenic West Coast National Park, which may not have the Big Five but does have the Slow Five: tortoises, whales, sand sharks, porcupines and dune moles. Eland, wildebeest, hartebeast, bontebuck, springbok, Kudu and mountain zebra can also be seen mostly in the Postberg section of the park. This section is open during August and September, to show off its rainbow coloured spring flower carpets, often with wildlife grazing amongst them. Game viewing in the West Coast National Park on bicycle is a popular activity too. The oldest known footprint of a modern human – Eve’s Footprint – was also discovered in the park on the banks of the Langebaan Lagoon in 1995. The fossil footprint is dated at about 117 000 years old.
