Agulhas National Park Activities

On an Agulhas National Park holiday in South Africa you can stretch your legs on wonderful walks, hikes and trails or get out your gear and enjoy rock and deep sea fishing along the rugged coastline.

See the remains of a shipwreck on the shore and take a photo at the cairn which marks the spot for the very tip of Africa. Visit local attractions and make the most of your Agulhas National Park holiday in South Africa. There is a Shipwreck Museum in Bredasdorp, a lighthouse museum in L’Agulhas and the Elim Heritage Centre.

On Fynbos Walks, you can see floral displays in the park any time of the year but the most colourful period is between May and September. You can also enjoy coastal hikes and keep a lookout for the rare African Black Oystercatcher. Between June and September, The Southern Right Whale visits the Agulhas shores.

Just east of the lighthouse you can see ancient Khoisan stone fish traps. Other parts of the coastline reveal aspects of life in long ago times. Stone hearths, pottery and shell middens are directly linked to Khoisan migration and settlement thousands of years ago.
