Swartvlei

Wilderness, Western Cape
+0

Description

Swartvlei is the largest and deepest lake in the Wilderness National Park in Wilderness, Western Cape. It is connected to the sea for 6 months of the years, before the mouth silts closed for the rest of the year.

Boating on the Swartvlei is a thoroughly enjoyable and popular recreational activity. All kinds of boats such as paddle-boats, rubber-ducks, sailing boats, catamarans, motor-boats and canoes are allowed on the water, provided you have a permit. Please make sure all boaters have life jackets.

You can enjoy a guided cruise around Swartvlei Lake with Captain Saney aboard the "Loose Goose" that leaves at regular intervals from Pine Lake Marina every day. Swartvlei estuary, the area between the river mouth, around the island and up to the N2 road bridge is great for canoeing. Birding enthusiasts will be in their element, with plenty of water birds to view.
