Langebaan Country Estate & surrounds
From the moment you drive through the Estate’s impressive gates, you’ll feel your heart rate slowing, and you’ll discover a lifestyle you wouldn’t have imagined possible, served chilled daily, just over an hour out of Cape Town.
The Estate functions brilliantly, from the management of the clubhouses to loads of outdoor and indoor sporting facilities, that appeal to a thriving community of resident ‘locals’ and ‘international swallows’, and their families who you’ll find strolling the pristine gardens and many paths and trails from dawn to dusk each day.
The Village is located within the Langebaan Country Estate and residents will have access to its many sport and leisure facilities which include an 18-hole Gary Player Black Knight-designed golf course, driving range, mashie course, two outdoor swimming pools, bowls club, tennis courts and running and mountain bike cycling paths. Or you can nip down for a sundowner at the Blaze Cocktail bar before enjoying dinner at Horizon Restaurant at the Estate’s main clubhouse.
You may just find that there are not enough hours in a day to do all you would like to!

OUT AND ABOUT
A shore thing
Almost year round sunshine, safe waters and reliable winds make Langebaan paradise for beach and water sport lovers – particularly kite surfers, wind surfers, kayakers, yachtsmen, water skiers and fishermen.
Wild about the West Coast
The picturesque, modern town borders onto the scenic West Coast National Park, which may not have the Big Five but does have the Slow Five: tortoises, whales, sand sharks, porcupines and dune moles. Eland, wildebeest, hartebeest, bontebok, springbok, kudu and mountain zebra. The Postberb section, open during August and September, shows off its rainbow coloured spring flower carpets, often with wildlife grazing amongst them. Game viewing in the West Coast National Park on bicycle is a popular activity too.
No bones about it
Close to the town, at Langebaanweg, is the West Coast Fossil Park – the only fossil park in South Africa. It’s home to the ancient Big Five that once roamed this area. The remains of Africa’s only bear have also been discovered here, along with the fossils of 200 other species. Visitors can enjoy an informative tour of a fossil dig and hunt for their own fossils, and there is biking, hiking and horse riding through the park. The oldest known footprint of a modern human – Eve’s Footprint – was also discovered in the park on the banks of the Langebaan Lagoon in 1995. The fossil footprint is dated at about 117 000 years old.
