Darling on the West Coast Way

“Only an hour from Cape Town… but a million miles away!”


Darling Tourism will be selling beautiful “Victorian” Calendars at various outlets in Darling and we’re calling on all locals to assist us in raising vital funds to market our town. Purchase one for your home and a few more as the perfect gift for family and friends.

All profits after costs are deducted will be split between SWARTLAND SPCA and DARLING TOURISM.

With your help, we look forward to selling out!!


How did the calendar come about?

Darling resident Chloe Saunders approached Nina Monda to come up with a project using some beautiful early 1900 century children’s clothing which Chloe has had for a long time. Nina saw the opportunity to do something special for the community and discussed her ideas in a Darling Tourism meeting where she is a committee member. Everyone agreed that a Darling calendar for 2016 using local children and animals photographed at various venues in and around Darling would be an exciting project.

The decision was made to donate the proceeds after all the relevant costs to both Darling Tourism and the Swartland & West Coast SPCA.

Nina teamed up with professional photographer Carla Steyn (another Darling local) to work together, with Carla doing the photography and Nina the concepts and styling.

It was a lot of fun to do and as you can imagine, a little challenging, working with all ages of children and animals from baby ducks, rabbits, chickens, and dogs!!

We hope that you will love the calendar as much as we do, and will support us by purchasing at least one for your home.

Will make some nice Christmas stocking fillers!!


Here are a few pics just to whet your appetite. Our beautiful Darling Children!
