The Breede River (which means 'broad river') rises in the mountains of Ceres in the Western Cape and flows for some 320km through the Bredde River Valley on its way to the Indian Ocean. It is the longest navigable river in the Western Cape and provides vital irrigation for the fruit and wine farms that can be found in the Breede River Valley, flowing past some important agricultural towns like Worcester and Swellendam. It's a recreational playground .....Angling, swimming, paddling, wine tasting, river rafting....these are just some of the pleasures you can enjoy when you follow the course of the Breede River from source to the sea. On its way to the sea, the Breede River flows past the Bontebok National Park which has a delightful campsite and comfortable chalets. Here visitors can go swimming, paddling, angling (with a valid permit) or simply relax with a picnic basket on its banks. The river meets the sea at Witsand, a beautiful estuary where the sea tides can push up as far as 50km into the river, providing an important ecological haven for young fish. Witsand and nearby Cape Infanta is also a premier whale-watching destination in early summer. The estuary is favoured by anglers who fish for spotted grunter and dusky kob in its waters whereas a few kilometres upstream the calmer waters are popular with watersport enthusiasts. Wine lovers will delight in visiting one of the many wine estates to be found in this region. The longest wine route in the world, Route 62, starts here at Robertson in a region famous for its hanepoot and muscadel dessert wines. Those with energy to spare might like to try water sports such as river rafting.
