South Africa may be best known for its “Big 5”, but the nautical wildlife is just as impressive! Each year, southern right whales take a break in Cape water, treating Cape Town locals and outsiders with a display of spurting & spyhopping whales. There are actually 2 best places that you can consider for your next whale watching tour in South Africa. Let’s talk about them briefly:
Cape Agulhus: Up to fifty pairs of southern right whales & calves have been known to play in the ocean close to the southernmost end of Africa. The Whale Trail, a 5-day trek along the dunes, beaches, and cliffs, offers you a great chance to witness these gentle giants as well as their offspring.
Hermanus: Rated among the top 12 whale watching destinations on the planet by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund), Hermanus provides some find land-based whale watching opportunities because whales often come close to the coastline. There’re viewing patios at the Old Harbour, and Gearing Point is a well-recognized spot. Throughout the whale-watching months, a Whale Crier informs watchers to the existence of whales by blowing on a kelp horn. However, to immerse yourself completely in the whale watching experience, you should plan your trip during the 1st week of October when the coastal town accommodates an annual whale festival.
