Walker Bay boat-based whale watching
Embark on a boat trip in search of the magnificent southern right whales that collect here to mate, calve, and rear their young, migrating from their icy feeding grounds off Antarctica to the warmer South African coastline each year. From land and sea, enjoy their incredible displays of water acrobatics.
Hermanus, between mountain and sea
Stroll around Hermanus and appreciate the fisherman's village charm it has retained despite its growing popularity. The most beautiful beaches and swimming spots are found at Voëlklip and Grotto Beach. Visit the Old Harbour and Whale House Museum, enjoy excellent shopping, the restaurants and optional activities.
Hemel and Aarde Valley food and wine pairing
Inland from Hermanus is the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde valley, appropriately translated to Heaven and Earth, here you will indulge in a guided food and wine pairing. A sought-after wine destination with knowledgeable and attentive staff adding to the elegant experience overlooking vines cascading down the valley and the commanding mountain slopes.
Always take the scenic road home
It’s all about the journey as you return to Cape Town along the scenic Clarens Drive which offers incomparable views across False Bay, the surrounding fynbos-cloaked mountains and the ocean. Lookout points, coffee spots and the likelihood of a baboon sighting enhance the experience.
