South Africa, West Coast things to do

OK, you are on holiday in Cape Town and have some time on your hand, so why mot have a little drive up the beautiful West Coast. It is not far but there is plenty to do.

Start the drive and go over Darling, the stunning little Victorian village, worth stopping and walk through the lovely streets with all the renovated Victorian houses. Maybe stop at Ormonde Wine Estate for a tasting, you won't be disappointed. Of course Darling is the town of Evita Perron, or Peter Dirk Uys little theatre, museum and coffee shop. A must to stop there too. The hand made glass pearl animals are so beautiful and well made, and the Koeksusters are amazing.

Then there is the West Coast National Park, lovely to drive through when going to Langebaan, a lovely village on the coast.

Why I actually write this blog so is because of the West Coast Farm Stall. When you drive from Darling direction Yzerfontein......yes you remember right the little seaside resort where I had the sheep's heads last Christmas, you will arrive at the Farm Stall just when crossing the R27. There are plenty of bird cages with exotic birds and the latest attraction is the Lions. They have white and normal Lion and one can get to them with a short tractor drive. The perfect stop with kids, they can see the lions and then play in the jungle gym.

There is Sunday Lunch, and every day lunch. Just a buffet with self service, but really good value for money. Don't expect fine dining, but be sure the tummy will be full.
