You are here: Home  > Velddrif
The origin of the name of Velddrif happens when a local farmer brought his stock to find an area to graze across the river and they needed to pass through a drift in the veld. And Laaiplek is where the wheat harvest from the Sandveld was loaded (laai means load in Afrikaans) onto smaller boats, after making its way down the Berg River, when it then crossed the sand banks to larger ships en route to Cape Town. Velddrif brings to mind the Berg River, fishermen, bokkoms and beautiful beaches. Birdwatchers can spot 183 species, of which at least 70 are water birds in Velddrif itself, or at nearby Rocherpan Nature Reserve. However, it is not just about the river and the coast.
