Whales and Walking Tour


  • We leave Cape Town at approximately 8am and get onto the scenic coastal road that runs from Gordon’s Bay to the small town of Kleinmond.
  • Here there is a chance to see the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens which displays the Cape Floral Kingdom in all its splendour.
  • After exploring this enchanted garden we continue on to Hermanus, rated to have the world’s best land based whale watching.
  • We have lunch at one of the local seaside restaurants with stunning ocean views before getting back into some serious whale spotting.
  • The whales we are most likely to encounter are the southern right whales; these come to the perfect shallow, sandy-bottomed and sheltered bays for mating, calving, nursing their young and resting.
  • Whales can be seen literally beneath you as you explore the paths along the coastal cliffs which drop steeply into the ocean.
  • There is also the opportunity to take an optional whale watching boat cruise for those who want to get even closer.
  • We end this fantastic day by heading back to Cape Town over Sir Lowry’s pass with its sweeping views of False Bay before returning you safely to your accommodation in Cape Town.
