If you have ever experienced shark cage diving or whale watching in South Africa, you have most probably been to, or heard about, Walker Bay.
A gorgeous wind-swept bay located between False Bay and Cape Agulhas in the Western Cape Province, Walker Bay not only attracts some of the largest Great White Sharks and whales in the Atlantic Ocean, but it also boasts an enormous array of flora and fauna, specifically Fynbos, making it a wonderful holiday destination for nature lovers.
There are some stunning properties within the Walker Bay area, such as the uber luxurious Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, and the charming Mosaic Private Sanctuary, and if you can drag yourself away from the glitz and glamour of Cape Town, we can highly recommend treating yourself to a day or two along this marine protected area.
During our recent stay at the Mosaic Private Sanctuary, we were given the opportunity to take a quad biking tour along the sand dunes to Walker Bay beach for sundowners. The sundowner part sounded good to me, but for someone who cannot even drive a lawnmower, the thought of setting off into unknown territory on a four-wheeled mean machine was somewhat daunting!
However, quad biking we did, and I can honestly say it was one of the most thrilling excursions I have ever been on! Along with two fellow guests, Hannah and Judith, we set off into the sunset along with our guide for some serious sand dune action, and arrived at the beach in time to pop open the Sauvignon Blanc as the sun began to set…
A perfect end to a perfect day, the sunsets in South Africa are, arguably, the most beautiful in the world, and as Walker Bay is so remote and un-crowded, the sunsets along these shores seem even more special.
