1. Bredasdorp Shipwreck Museum

Explore the Shipwreck Museum that is housed in the former Independent Church with additional museums in the churches’ parsonage and coach-house. Expect to discover treasures such as cannons, porcelain and coins. Added to this are fully-restored horse-drawn hearses and a vintage fire truck.

 
2. Nuwejaars Wetlands Special Management Area (Bredasdorp)

Discover a natural area that spans 46,000 hectares and is home to indigenous plants, birds and game that includes Buffalo and Hippo which have been reintroduced to their natural habitat after almost two hundred years.

Take a short drive to the southernmost tip of Africa and see if you can spot where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet.
