Velorenvlei Estuary

Velorenvlei Estuary

Verlorenvlei is a long estuary stretching between the villages of Elands Bay and Redelinghuys, some 25 kilometres south of Lambert’s Bay. Verlorenvlei is one of the most important estuarine systems in the Western Cape and one of the largest natural wetlands along the west coast of South Africa. It is also one of the few coastal fresh water lakes in the country. The system comprises a coastal lake and reedswamp connected to the sea by a small estuary.

At least 26% of the Western Cape's Great White Pelican Pelecanus onocrotalus population congregates at Verlorenvly at times.
