Untouched Schrywershoek

There are few places in the world that match the seclusion of Schrywershoek in the West Coast National Park, one of South Africa’s least explored coastal sanctuaries. Bordering a pristine lagoon with a gently undulating shoreline, there is nothing more peaceful than a stay here.

Cocooned from the world, there’s time to appreciate the hundreds of pink flamingos that return each year, to walk among fields of wild Namaqualand daisies and colourful flowers that bloom each spring… or to simply swim, sleep, relax and eat gloriously delicious meals together in this untouched part of the world.
