A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants & Businesses in Mossel Bay, South Africa

General Information

Mossel Bay, famous for the Old Post Office Tree and Bartholomeu Diaz, is a seaside town in the Garden Route of the Western Cape in South Africa.

Mossel Bay is situated approximately half way between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.

Mossel Bay is closely linked to maritime activities with its lighthouse being first lit in 1864.

One of the most famous landmarks in Mossel Bay is the Post Office Tree, where ancient seafarers on their way to the east left their letters for home in a shoe or iron pot. Sailors returning to Portugal would collect these letters and so the first Post Office in Southern Africa was founded.
