The Postberg section of the West Coast National Park is open from August to September each year. The wild flower bloom in this section of the park is spectacular, with a wide variety of species flowering in a multitude of colours.
Situated in the north-west section of the Park, Postberg also has a large concentration of game including, Eland, Cape Mountain Zebra, Bontebok and Springbuck. It is also a great birding area with many raptors showing well, including African Black Harrier.
The viewpoint from the top of Posberg provides a 360 degree vista of the Park and surrounding areas, including Saldanah Bay and Langebaan Lagoon. The large granite boulders provide shelter for many different plants and smaller mammals species, such as Rock Hyrax (Dassie). Plankiesbaai and Uitkyk areas inside Posberg offer dedicated picnic areas and ablutions.
You may also be able to spot Southern Right Whales and the endemic Heavisides's Dolphin along the coastal sections of the Park.
