Lying in what is known as the Agulhas Plain at the southernmost tip of Africa is the Agulhas National Park, just 45 kilometres from the popular village of Gansbaai. This is a national park, with the most popular part of the park being Cape Agulhas. You will have to travel to the southern Overberg region of the Western Cape, about 200 kilometres south-east of Cape Town to visit this spectacular park.
This area boasts a rich diversity of flora and has a number of wetlands where engendered flora and fauna can be found. You may catch a glimpse of the Micro Frog and Cape Plantana. Agulhas National Park is a nature lover’s paradise where you will discover fascinating ecological habitats, shipwrecks, national monuments and signs of ancient settlements.
If you visit the park during the second half of the year, make sure to keep on the lookout for Southern Right Whales during their seasonal migration.
You will also be able to enjoy a variety of hikes, walks and trails. Make sure to visit the lighthouse on your journey, as well as the graveyard of ships that lie just off the coast (once known as ‘the Cape of Storms’), where some 250 ships have been wrecked.
