The Wonderful Whale Coast

For the best land-based whale watching in South Africa,  June - November is ideal, and especially during August and September.

The Overberg coast forms part of the MTN Cape Whale Route. There are three types of whales likely to be seen, namely, the Southern Right Whale, Humpback and Bryde's.

The whales may be viewed along the Overberg coast and especially good vantage points are along Hermanus' Walker Bay, Agulhas and at Koppie Alleen in the De Hoop Nature Reserve.
