Witsand Upmarket Backpackers
WITSAND "THE" Whale Nursery of SA offers so much for the eco-friendly tourists. Too much do see and do in one night, so plan to spend 2 nights in this lovely fishing village.
Whale aerial survey Oct 2002 = 117 whales of which 49 were calves in our nursery.... Is'nt that amazing? (Season Jul to Nov)
Challenging hikes, sea charters, river cruises up to the Bush Pub, horse trails, quad bikes, pansey shell snorkeling, and much more.
We offer upmarket accommodation, including linen and bath towels. En suite rooms and small dorm.
Not the normal backpacker but well appointed and furnished with stunning views of the farmlands and mountains. Fully equipped for self-catering,
with braai facilities.
Access route from Malgas, over the pont, and the N2 on the tarred R322. Preferable to book in advance to determine availability.
We have a passion for foreigners and enjoy meeting and chatting about their countries and sharing ours with them.
Hope to see you soon! email
