Trip Info

A tour of the coastline will allow you the opportunity for whale watching and discover the beauty of our countryside. This day tour will cover visits to a botanical garden, an eco center, a whale watching cliff and a seaside town.

The journey will take you along Clarence Drive for the spectacular views of Gordon’s Bay and Betty’s Bay. A visit to the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens at Betty’s Bay is a special treat for nature lovers. Set in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, it contains more than 1,600 plant species.

Keeping with the nature theme, a visit to nearby Stoney Point and Eco Center will allow you to learn more about the whales. It is also home to Stoney Point penguin colony, which is monitored and protected. Here, you will also find the perfect spot on the cliff to watch the whales. These whales are attracted to the local warm waters throughout July to November.

The seaside town, or village as locals call it, of Hermanus is a great place to stop for a bite of lunch. A walking tour of the area will showcase the unique qualities of this fishing town.

There will be more photo opportunities of the region’s landscape as we return to Cape Town.
