photo pontoon at MalgasThis is a sleepy town situated on the banks of the Breede River. Each little house which lines the banks of the river has its own jetty and motor-boat. The river is recognised as the best fishing estuary in South Africa and is also home to an abundance of bird species and wildlife.


Malgas is home to the only river ferry in South Africa, which serves as a vital link between the east and west bank communities of the Breede River. Taking a trip on this pontoon leaves one with a feeling of nostalgia and also in awe of this incredible river.


Only a 2 hour drive from Cape Town, Malgas is close enough to serve as a relaxing weekend getaway for city dwellers. Accommodation is limited but the accommodation available is breathtaking – situated on the banks of the river with a spectacular view of mother nature in all her glory. There are all sorts of water sports on offer, including canoe trips down the great Breede River, swimming and sailing.


The De Hoop Nature Reserve is also in the area, which is a lovely destination for birdwatching and walking.
