Things to Do in and Around Velddrif

Things to do in Port Owen, Velddrif, West Coast
Bird Watching

The Riviera mudflat is perhaps the most famous of the Velddrif birding localities, and a number of rarities have been seen here — most famously the only African record of the American Little Blue Heron. As always, it is important to get the tide right: the best viewing begins about 1.5 hours after the ‘High tide in Table Bay’ as listed in Cape Town newspapers. A diverse selection of waterbirds may be observed from here, including White Pelican, African Spoonbill, Greater and Lesser Flamingo, Purple Heron, Little Egret, and a wide selection of terns including Caspian and Little Terns. The mudflats are excellent in summer for migrant waders

Bokkomlaan

Wander along the oldest road in Velddrif where time seems to stand still. Watch the tide come in while the local fisherman ply their trade in the age old way. Sip a cocktail at one of the restaurants or amble along and buy a piece of West Coast art from the local art gal

Flower Season

Flower season in the Weskus is at its peak from August to September annually. Seems no one informed Mother Nature that this is the case as we already have a plethora of flowers in the region. White Daisies, Orange Gousblomme, Blue Flaks (Heliophila), Ixia and many more are making their presence felt. So whats stopping you put the pedal to the metal before the petals wilt. For more information contact the flower hotline 063 724 6203 or visit www.capewestcoast.org
