If you enjoy nature and walking, you will love the many hiking trails that can be found that meander through fynbos vegetation and some beautiful dunes, around Struisbaai South Africa, and that also give one the opportunity to whale watch. There are some spectacular fynbos nature reserves. The fynbos is part of the Cape Floral Kingdom and has more than 8500 species of exquisitely flowering plants. It is at its most splendid from autumn to springtime. Mountain biking is another way to enjoy the wildlife, birdlife and of course the fynbos. One can also spot ostrich along with merino sheep and dairy cattle on the low shrub covered terrain which borders the sandy coastline. There are also many seabirds including sandpipers, cormorants, gannets and seagulls. The Struisbaai Bed and Breakfast accommodation venues have maps for all the local walks and guests staying over at one of the Struisbaai self catering accommodation holiday houses or cottages, can find information about all the surrounding hiking trails online.
