Saldanha Bay & Surrounds
Tour starts and ends in Cape Town
This tour is now fully booked!
Day 1: Saturday 30th December
We take our leave of the city at the start of this extended long-weekend!
How about a group of Old Fossils visiting the Fossil Park outside Langebaan and enjoying a light lunch (own account) & guided tour (included)? The West Coast Fossil Park is world-renowned for its well-preserved fossil faunal, dating back about 5.2 million years.
After our tour and lunch we will travel to Saldanha and check into the Blue Bay Lodge. Spend some time investigating your surroundings or put your feet up and watch the movement of vessels on the lagoon.
Dinner in Langebaan (TBA)
Day 2: Sunday 31st December
After a leisurely breakfast, we will go with John Wayne from Bokkom Laan on a 1 ½ hour boat cruise down the Berg River Estuary (included). (Jokes aside his name is really John Wayne but we hear he doesn’t operate his boat in cowboy pants and boots!) This safe, very pleasant meander down the Berg River with its wealth of bird life is a wonderful way to see ‘out-the-old-year’ – “Doing it slowly”
We will then take a ride to St Helena Bay area where there is a quaint restaurant, The Alegria , where I will organise mezze platters (for your account). Once again, nothing is finer than sharing a plate of food with a friend. After lunch you will be taken back to Blue Bay Lodge for a little siesta (zzzz) or lie around their pool discussing how you’ve faired in 2017! Perhaps even discussing what you will be hoping to achieve in 2018, might be more appropriate!
The Old Year party will start by 19h30 with good food, music to dance the night away, and good company! (Most Traveltime Tours produces this instantly)!
Breakfast / Dinner
Day 3: Monday 1st January 2018
Allow yourself to ‘surface’ when you feel like it—what about some champagne with your breakfast this morning? We check out mid-morning and drive the 30km to Paternoster. We thought Paternoster would be the best place to celebrate New Years Day!
We are sure to find a pizza place or something light for lunch (own account) OR even a drink in their (in-) famous Panty Bar and a lunch snack on their veranda, watching the passing parade of life in Paternoster!
Before we saunter back to the city in the late afternoon we can assure you, you will be feeling so much more relaxed and refreshed to handle the start of 2018.
