Langebaan Lagoon
Langebaan is a town in the Western Cape Province of South Africa on the eastern shore of Langebaan Lagoon.
Langebaan is situated 120 km north of Cape Town, just off the R27, about 28 km from Vredenburg and 20 km from Saldanha Bay. The Lagoon stretches for 17 km from Saldanha Bay, past Langebaan to Geelbek in the South. In places it is up to 4 km wide
The Langebaan Lagoon was formed by the rising and falling of sea levels during pre-historic times. This is unlike most lagoons which form where fresh water rivers enter the sea. As a result, Langebaan Lagoon is purely a salt water lagoon.
As far back as 500 000 years ago, early Homo sapiens were probably present in the area, living in groups and hunting small game, displacing carnivores, such as lions, from their kills and gathering plant foods. They made fire as protection and for cooking and probably made simple shelters from branches. António de Saldanha, from Portugal after whom the bay is named, did not enter those waters at all.

Situated some 2 km upstream from where the Berg River flows into the sea at the Bay of St Helena on the Cape West Coast lies Velddrif. Named after farmer, Theunis Smit, who took his stock through a drift in the veld, to find grazing across the river, which the animals often had to swim across. In 1899, a pont was built, which was the only means of crossing the Berg River. Around 1920 the wheat harvest from the Sandveld was brought down the Berg River to the mouth for storing before being loaded into smaller boats to bigger ships waiting further out, on their way to Cape Town.
The "loading place" eventually became Laaiplek- adjacent to Velddrif. In 1968 engineers blasted a channel, linking the river with St Helena Bay, and the fishing harbour of Laaiplek was completed.
Famous for their lessor Pink Flamingos and Pelikans, excellent surf and rock fishing. Velddrif Accommodation offers visitors a choice of hotels, caravan parks and guest houses
