South Africa (Western Cape)

Langebaan is an idyllic little seaside town on the South African West Coast.  Founded in 1922, this historical town was once a whaling station but has evolved into a mecca for nature-lovers and water sport enthusiasts. The lagoon is part of the West Coast National Park, a world-renowned birding spot.  During the flower season (July – September) the landscape is transformed into a giant garden as the area explodes into a riot of colors when the wild flowers bloom.  During winter and early spring one might catch sight of a Southern Right Whale in the lagoon where they return to calve each year.
