The Whale Coast of South Africa leaves visitors breathless, with its sweeping seascapes, endless beaches and mile upon mile of green vegetation. The fishing villages are still in full working order, and provide much of the country, even the world, with fresh seafood. It is this part of the Western Cape Province that is home to the Walker Bay Nature Reserve, just outside Hermanus.

This reserve offers visitors to the area the fantastic opportunity of trying out their 4x4 skills on the Walker Bay Fisherman’s 4x4 Trail, which is situated in the Die Plaat section of the reserve. The route is some 20 kilometres long and takes an hour or two to complete. However, it is only a grade one trail and is, therefore, more about appreciating the loveliness of the countryside than testing your capacity for adrenalin.

It is a circular route that requires no formal guiding and the terrain is made up of pebbles, rocks, sand and a few small sand dunes. It takes drivers and passengers through sections of the reserve, showcasing some of its natural diversity, and then continues to the stunning rock formations of the Sopiesklip. This is a popular spot for picnics, so visitors are encouraged to pack a basket and enjoy the views.

Along the way, there are some excellent fishing spots, where anglers are invited to stop and enjoy some of the local serenity as they vie for the best catch. In addition, other popular local activities include swimming, whale watching (between August and November), hiking, cycling and walking. Those venturing out onto the Walker Bay Fisherman’s 4x4 Trail will, no doubt, enjoy the peace and abundance of the area.

Please note that driving on the beach, sand dunes or anywhere that is not a demarcated road is illegal and strictly prohibited.
