The Whale Coast

Packed into a section of the beautiful and dramatic southern Cape coastline, often referred to as the Whale Coast, is one of the best places in the world for marine life. Here you can see the Marine Big Five: whale, shark, seal, penguin and dolphin. The pretty coastal town of Hermanus, just two hours east of Cape Town is South Africa’s whale watching capital from July to November, during the southern right whale migration. Further along the coast are Grootbos Private Nature Reserve and De Hoop Nature Reserve, offering the ideal outdoors experience with sea, sand dunes, and mountains, and a wealth of marine life, birds, animals, and rare plant species to discover.
