There is a self service braai (barbeque) area for those who like to get together around the fire after a day of adventure taking in all there is to offer along the West Coast.


If you are travelling without a car please take note that the Elwierda bus service runs a daily link between Cape Town train station and Saldanha at very reasonable rates.
