Curious about the Geology around you?



Over the past years, WESSA Eden has organised self-drive Geology tours led by local geologists to 3 areas of geological interest. These were the Klein Karoo Circuit, the Kammannassie and the Coastal section from Mossel Bay to Wilderness Heights.

Buffels Bay

These proved to be extremely popular and satisfied the interest of local residents regarding our geological past and formations.

Knysna Heads

The next WESSA Coastal Geology Tour will focus on an exceptionally beautiful stretch of our coastline, from Robberg at Plettenberg Bay to Gericke’s Point at Sedgefield. 

Knysna Lagoon

Participants will meet at 08:00 on Saturday 24 August in Plettenberg Bay where registration will take place and an introductory geological overview will be given.  Participants will be divided into three groups, under the expert guidance of Paul Rixon, Peter Ginn, and Colin Ralston.  

Gericke Point

The self-drive guided tour will visit five different geosites:  Robberg, Kranshoek, Knysna East Heads, Brenton Road, and Gericke’s Point.  Your picnic lunch will be enjoyed at the beautiful Kranshoek picnic site in the Harkerville area.
