Best time to visit is during flower season, end of August beginning of September. Went last year and the flowers were beautiful. I would go back every year.

We had a lovely day driving through the park. We were too late in the year to see all the flowers but the scenery was lovely.. A beautiful lagoon with a deserted sandy beach & the rugged Atlantic coast. We saw quite a few ostriches.

We saw lots of birds especailly Ostrich but not many animals, only in the distance. Abrahamskraal waterhole was well worth a visit, as was the rocky coastline at Tsaarsbank

The park has good roads and covers both the Langebaan lagoon, strandveld hills and valleys as well as a section of the Atlantic ocean. Animals were not that plentiful but birdlife particularly waders abundant

We regularly visit WCNP and can recommend it to anybody who wants to get away from the city. It is especially good for birders who would like to add some waders to their life list. We really enjoy the park and what it has to...More

We were not expecting to see much on the 14 km trail especially since we started in drizzling weather but we were doing it for some exercise. We were pleasantly surprised with sightings of herds of gemsbokke, ostriches, lots of tortoises and some bontebokke and...More

That was our main reason to extend our holiday from Cape Town to Langebaan. Mind it is not very easy to move around in Langebaan, i.e. no taxis no Uber no buses. If you hired a car you’ll be fine. We didn’t have a car...More
