For a very long time I’ve heard about Oudekraal and about the outdoor parties that they used to have there. Every time I drove from Houtbay to Camps Bay I’d love to look at the bolder lined beaches on the Atlantic sea board. It really is the most exquisite drive.
So on Saturday afternoon when I got home from work I jumped onto Facebook and saw friends were braaiing at Oudekraal! I couldn’t resist joining them and shot off over the hill to visit the beautiful location. Oudekraal is a little hidden bay near the 12 Apostles hotel. There are actual ablution blocks there as well as build braai facilities. There are even dustbins for your trash and game rangers monitoring the location as it’s part of the San Parks range.
Entrance is R30 for adults or R15 but we got there a bit late so they didn’t make us pay (only an hour until it closed). The staff were SUPER friendly and helpful so it was a complete joy. We made braai burgers, pork chops and beef steak and chillaxed under the African sun. Beautiful!
I highly recommend getting a group of your friends and enjoying braaiing, swimming in the sea or just hanging out at Oudekraal. It really is one of Cape Town’s best kept secrets.
