Flowers Season

The most amazing spectacle of all has to be the flower season. Langebaan is abuzz (literally) with (not only beez) but tourists and locals flocking to the coast to witness the blooming of the spring flowers.

This natural exhibition takes place any time between the end of July to the end of September. The most favourable time to book your accommodation, right in the middle of the flowers, is usually between mid-August to mid-September when the weather conditions are just right.

One of a kind hiking trails

One of the most spectacular ways to experience flower season is on the 2 day Postberg trail on foot. The trail takes a maximum of 12 people per day at R120.00 p/p excluding conservation fees. Each year bookings open from the 1 June, so if you miss out this year, keep that in mind for 2018.

The day trail known as the Steenbok hiking trail is available to a maximum of 20 people per day at R70 p/p excluding conservation fees. Both trails are only open during August and September. To book both trails contact the Geelbek Information Centre on 022 707 9902/3.
