Port of Saldanha

Situated on the West Coast of South Africa some 60 nautical miles north-west of Cape Town, the Port of Saldanha, since its “discovery" in the year 1601, remains the largest and deepest natural port in the Southern Hemisphere able to accommodate vessels with a draft of up to 21.5 meters. 

The port covers a land and sea surface of just over 19,300 hectares within a circumference of 91 kilometers with maximum water depths of 23.7meters. 

Saldanha is unique in that it has a purpose-built rail link directly connected to a jetty bulk loading facility for the shipment of iron ore.
