From West coast – To East coast

image

Everyone dashes off to the west coast just as the sun comes out in West Coast in spring to marvel at the tapestry of colours splashed across our landscape.

Expect endless open spaces and blue blue sky’s and a never ending road leading you straight into our beautiful and wild coast line.

The cold water is crystal blue and the cottages sprinkled along the coast.

Old and sometimes run down they make for magnificent photography. An abundance of bird life and smaller creatures of the desert. On the roads you might come across tumble weed, snakes and tortoise making their way across the vast arid land.  If you are in search of the sun, open skies and miles of open spaces then head of to the West Coast.

From Cape Town to swakopmund you will find little oasis sections of lush greenery and warm water springs and stops along the way.

The World of Birds for Children

The World of Birds

Macaw, Blue-and-Gold PJ4aThis is a must for all families, pack your picnic basket for the day and take a trip to The World of Birds, It on one of the many benches and watch the flamingo’s on the lake. Wonder through the large bird enclosures and experience the birds around you. The last time I was there a bird wanted to perch on my shoulder. Magnificent Owls, Eagles and other fascinating birds. The monkey enclosure is great fun as these friendly fury animals try and open your hand convinced you have some treats for them. It can be a full days delight and will take you some time to get through this delightful journey.

These birds are rescued and re-rehabilitated, by amazing and wonderful volunteers. So If you have bird that needs help this is the place to take it, be sure to offer a donation no matter how small or large.
