Things to do
The Diaz Express
The Diaz Express provides a rail experience run on the existing Transnet rail network in the Garden Route region of South Africa, between the scenic seasideresorts of Great Brak River on the one side and Mossel Bay on the other side. All excursions has lovely views over the Indian Ocean (with a ring side seat for whale watching during the season), river estuaries and the indigenous plant life of the Cape Floral Kingdom.
What makes Mossel Bay so unique is that all five vegetation types of the Cape Floral Kingdom are present. Beautiful areas of Lowland Fynbos, with patches of Limestone Fynbos can be viewed. Especially unique for a coastal town is the Succulent Karoo element. The Afromotane Forests are found towards the mountains on the outskirts of town.
Explore Mossel Bay on foot and experience the rich heritage of this magnificent town. The Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex in the centre of town consists of various museum and sites of interest such as the Granary, the Shell Museum and Aquarium, the Maritime Museum, the Culture Museum, the Spring, the Indigenous Garden, the Padrao - and without doubt the most well known historical feature within this Complex - the Old Post Office Tree.
