If you’re looking for the Big Five (Lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo) – Mossel Bay’s got them. But it’s also got some of the best stands of fynbos (Cape macchia) vegetation – especially in the Albertinia/Boggomsbaai areas, and in the Outeniqua Mountains – and some of the finest, most untouched coastal environments, where sightings of whales, dolphins, and the endangered African black oystercatcher are regular (and always exciting) events.
And that means authentic African wildlife experiences with a touch of the Cape.
Look here for safari game drives, bird watching, children’s wildlife programs and Mossel Bay’s unique style of lodge accommodation.
