Elandsbaai Day Tour

DAY TRIP
  • About 8 hours

Description

Join us on a return guided day trip around Elandsbaai where you can experience the area to your heart's delight.

Elandsbaai is also called E-Bay by the many surfers who take to the waves in this bay. It has become a haven for kite surfers and surfers alike.

This is also the area where we find the important set of caves where many artefacts were found that shows evidence of people living here about 4400 to 3000 years ago. Elands Bay Cave is perceived of more importance, as it covers a wider time span and includes the largest sample sizes. This cave is of particular significance, as it illustrates how people became more skillful with fire, thus showing evidence of a cultural evolution where man used hearths to warm themselves and to serve as light. The cave also shows how seafood was first consumed. A drainage system has gone through the Elands Bay Caves, now known as Verlorenvlei.

There are also a number of examples of Rock paintings spanning various eras.

This is our destination near Elands Bay above the Verlorenvlei River. It is in a quartzite sandstone formation and contains one of the most complete and continuous later Middle Stone Age sequences in Southern Africa. About 270 fragments of purposely engraved ostrich eggshells were found in this cave, suggesting that collective identities and individualistic expressions are clearly communicated, showing the development of culture in early man.

This is the best way to learn of the culture and heritage of this region.

A fully guided experience awaits you throughout your journey. Forget about traffic and let us lead you through the day.
