Leon Nell’s sixth book to explore another captivating part of South
Africa reveals a bounty of treasures that give the West Coast, or
Weskus as locals call it, its particular allure.
Beginning at Melkbosstrand just north of Cape Town, and ending where
the Orange River meets the Atlantic Ocean, the book divides the coastal
stretch into four discrete and easily explored regions. Coastal and
inland towns are described, together with their main
attractions, offering glimpses into early human history, local culture
and traditions, nature and wildlife, and modern-day economic pursuits.
- SOUTH encompasses the Cape West Coast Biosphere Reserve,
various wildflower reserves, Darling, Evita se Perron and !Khwa ttu San
- CENTRAL covers Yzerfontein and the West Coast National
Park, including Langebaan Lagoon, Eve’s Footprints, Postberg Flower
Reserve and Saldanha
- NORTH explores the celebrated fishing industry at Velddrif,
St Helena Bay and Elands Bay, and archaeological discoveries in the area
- DIAMOND COAST spans Doringbaai, Vredendal, Port Nolloth,
Kleinzee and Alexander Bay.
Framed by the Atlantic in the west and the winding N7 highway in the
east, the West Coast is a place of varied landscapes and vast
contrasts: from moody and at times tempestuous seas and windswept
beaches, to verdant vineyards and kaleidoscopic swathes of wildflowers
in spring. Wild yet tranquil, playful yet contemplative, dramatic yet
understated – its eclectic offering beckons residents and travellers
