14.02.2008 West Coast National Park
We arrived in Cape Town on a rainy morning with 19 degrees. As we managed to get through the town there was nothing to see of table mountain and the city from Bloubergstrand. It was too early for check-in at the hotel and we decided to have a short glimps at West Coast National Park this morning.
Our wild card was expired and we had to get a renewal at the West Coast National Park's office in Langebaan. There were no signs in Langebaan where to find this office, but when we were close to it we saw the sign in front of the building. larger view
In the mean time it was only a bit cloudy no rain any more.
The entrance of West Coast National Park has a new building, our last visit to this park was during the flower season 2005. larger view
Right after the gate there is a sign warning you should pay attention to tortoises and there they were ... larger view
On our way to Geelbek there were so many road crossing fellows.
Funny to see more tortoises than cars.
At noon it became sunny and nice warm.
After a wonderful lunch at Geelbek restaurant we saw many ostrichs in this area. larger view
During our last visit in the flower season we only saw an ostrich and one tortoise. So we already had more sightings as during our last day visit.
