Tourism and Biosphere Trails

Whether you are a workaholic or a lover of nature, you can participate in trails within the Saldanha Bay Municipal area and its surrounding towns.

The trails are of two and a half days’ duration and are an exciting way to grow the local economy by supporting existing and emerging tourism and hospitality service providers in the west coast region.

The trails are suited to hard-core mountain lovers, twitchers and botanists as well as family groups and modern-day strandlopers. These trails are guided and catered, comfortable and safe, with hikers carrying a lightweight daypack. Click here for more information.
