Jubel ‘n Juig
Jubel n Juig is a self-catering unit in Dwarskersbos. The fynbos forms part of the front and back gardens – and the sea – the backdrop to a tantalising break away.
It is a captivating sight to see and feel the mist rolling onto the beach. It is then that you hear the silence. The sound of water lapping at the sand on the beach. The seagulls crying, looking for fresh mussels. Then again the rush of the wind… you can smell the rain when the wind pushes against you – leaving traces of salt on your lips.
Leave the rat-race life behind and come and relax, come find your inner self and do whatever you not normally have time for during the year. Or, sit on the patio and enjoy a good book. The stroll to the beach is a mere 200m away – come and experience it!
Treat yourself with a picnic on the beach; book a boat trip on the Berg River; drive to Elands bay; Piketberg; Porterville. Pick cherries (December) on Klondyke Farm in Ceres. A light lunch at Draaihoek Lodge, half way to Elandsbaai, is a culinary experience!
Buy yourself a string of Bokkoms (wind dried fish) or bring your own fishing tackle. Retire at the end of the day with a braai on the patio. Above all, feel the tranquillity drain the tension!

Rocherpan Nature Reserve
Rocherpan Nature Reserve is a coastal birding haven 25km north of Velddrif on the West Coast. The prime feature is the large pan that attracts 183 species of birds. The reserve boasts four beautiful eco-cabins with uninterrupted views of the pan.
Rocherpan Nature Reserve boasts four newly refurbished eco-cottages: Kingfisher, Oystercatcher, Sandpiper and Flamingo – each named after bird species found on the reserve.

Each cabin has a braai area with a picnic style table and chairs on the deck overlooking the reserve, perfect for bird watching.
The reserve is home to a great diversity of bird species. The abundance of birdlife found on the reserve is due to the combination of seasonal wetlands, coastal vegetation and marine environments. Together they provide ample opportunity for breeding and feeding to a total of 183 bird species. White pelicans as well as greater and lesser flamingos, all listed in the Red Data book for endangered species, and are often seen at Rocherpan alongside the rare African black oystercatcher.
