ROOIELS

This picturesque area with its rocky shoreline and small beaches offers dramatic views across False Bay to the Cape Peninsula, perfect swimming and fishing opportunities, and numerous walks and trails for hikers. The richness of natural beauty is equalled by its richness in history. There are even a few stories of “children dressed in old-fashioned clothes” running up and down the Rooiels beach on warm summer evenings. Evidence of settlements by the Khoekhoe people are still visible and runaway slaves took refuge in caves in the inaccessible mountain slopes.

Rooi-Els is the first Cape Whale Coast stop on Clarence Drive. Famous for its magnificent views over False Bay and situated beside the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. The town roads are narrow, un-tarred and without street lights. Klein-Hangklip mountain dominates the village, and is home to a pair of Verreaux’s Eagles. You might note the Chacma baboons, Rock hyrax, small antelope, African clawless otters while you are there.

Rooi-Els is an underrated nature gem in the Kogelberg Nature Reserve. Read more here
