The Rocher Pans is a nature reserve and bird sanctuary just north of the town. In the cooler months of the year it is a haven for the greater flamingos. Also home to the red-knobbed coot and fluffy bishop birds - bird watching is only one of the many activities to do in this area.
Dwarskersbos, a few kilometres North of Velddrif, is a popular holiday destination. Activities here include boat trips up the river, sailing, hiking and whale watching.
