Activities

Depending on the rainfall and Mother Nature, the area is covered in colourful displays of wild-flowers from August to early October. From here inland areas such as Clanwilliam, Van Rhynsdorp and Namaqualand can be visited, all within a few hours' drive from Lambert's Bay. 

Visit Bird Island, an internationally famous breeding site for the Cape gannet colony, the only breeding site of only 6 sites worldwide that is easy accessible to the public, and the hides are so positioned that vositors litterally come eyeball to eyeball with these blue-eyed birds. Other bird species such as White breasted cormorants, Common terns, Cape cormorants, Hartlaub's gulls and kelp gulls, as well as Cape fur seals can be seen.
