Monika De Jager

and her #VisitNWC Team, the

Namaqua West Coast

always makes for a most memorable adventure! Here’s a quick throwback to what went down on the Weskus 🙂

Expedition: #BeyondLockdown
Timeline: Day 1
Distance: (429km)
“Bliksem. It feels good to be out of the city. Fresh air, views for frikken ever, stunning wines, quality free-range meat, and people you can stand around a braai fire with and talk kak for the whole night. I think we all need to still slow down and unwind from the city stress, but we’ll get there.”
The hunt for #headspace on our 4th
#BeyondExpeditions road trip saw us going feral along the insanely rugged @namaquawestcoast shoreline. Ocean-side sea cliffs soar above the tempestuous Atlantic Ocean, and the Viswater #trailrun route traverses what rates as one of the most dramatic sections of coast in all of #RSA.
This is feel-good country, for sure, and you can sense the benefits to your mind, body and soul as you breathe in the sea air, and reconnect with the real world. Time in the #greatoutdoors is the best natural medicine to counter stress, anxiety and all the pressures forced upon us by our hectic lives, and one way to slow it all down is a visit to the Weskus.
Best of all, if you visit to #playlocal and #staylocal, you end up supporting #tourism at grass-roots level, and will change the lives of thousands of people dependent upon your contribution to the local economy. Thank you for welcoming us to your #heartland, Monika
