in Betty's Bay, Western Cape, South Africa
The Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve has great outdoor venues and unique
mountainous landscapes, a pristine coast-line dotted with rocky coves, boulder
strewn slopes and tranquil beaches.
Day hiking trails, meandering Palmiet waters, wind swept dunes and superb Cape
sand stone mountainous crags amount to creating an area of intrigue and wild
reality, a playground for the adventurous spirit.
Sandboarding on the Blesberg Dune is just one of the activities that this area
has to offer. The dune was established many hundreds of years ago brought in by
massive south easterly winds. Today the dune is wind managed by our light summer
south easterlies and the topped in winter by the storming north westerly wind.
The white dune is a living dune and is for ever changing its expression.
The adrenalin Run - wax on wax off polish the under surface like an antique
piece of furniture, walk up to a height of 210m just below the rock mantle and
take a breather. Mentally prepare yourself for the run of your life. Whether
natural or goofy, strap the board on securely, take in a deep breath and venture
forth. The adrenalin run is a rush like no other.
Access to the dune is through private property and it therefore imperative to
abide by set regulations and help to contribute to the management of the dune so
that we all can continue to use this natural play-ground in the future.
We are proud to support Conservancy Village principles pertaining to this unique
area, enhancing environmental awareness as well as to promote sustainable
policies. We currently only offer hire of sandboards from The Couch Potato on
Clarence Drive (opposite Penguin Place).
