Witzand Aquifer Nature Reserve.
Find your way onto the R27 heading North up the West Coast, You’ll pass Melkbosstrand and the Koeberg Nuclear Power station on your left, turn right onto the R307 (Dassenberg road) to Atlantis. After about 3.5km you’ll see the entrance to the reserve. We meet you at the car park and then take a short walk into the dunes. The reserve is safe and your car is left in a secure area.
We take on our equipment, gazebo, chairs, and any stuff you bring (cooler boxes, food etc) with our 4x4.
We’ll give you a brief safety talk and then the instructor takes you through the basics of Sandboarding. The rest of the time is spent practicing and having fun under our guide’s supervision.
