Experience the whales close up on the whale watching boat
See Southern Right Whales, dolphins, cape fur seals and other ocean life
Enjoy land-based whale watching on the False Bay and Atlantic Coast
Visit the Cape of Good Hope, the most southwestern part of Africa

Witness the majestic Southern Right whales that come to the Cape each season to breed and calve. Whale season typically runs between June and November in the Cape, and each season, large numbers of whales can be seen along the coast.

Our tour starts with a scenic drive along Boyes Drive. We pass little villages on the False Bay coastline as we make our way to the naval village of Simon’s Town. At the Town Pier, we board the only False Bay whale watching boat licensed to approach the whales within 50 meters. You will be able to watch as these giants of the deep frolic in the waves and launch out of the water to breach.

After about two hours we return to Simon’s Town for lunch (own account).

In the afternoon we proceed to Cape Point Nature Reserve. There is an optional stop at the Boulders Beach penguin colony (own account). En-route to Cape Point, we will stop to take in the views and see if we can spot more whales. Within the reserve, we will look out for baboons, ostriches, zebras and other wildlife as we make our way to the Cape of Good Hope.

We return to Cape Town via Chapman's Peak Drive and Victoria drive. We should arrive in beautiful Camps Bay in time to witness the spectacular African sunset.

In your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle you will be able to relax and enjoy the sights on this memorable Cape Whale watching tour.

people of Southern Africa. The San Bushmen, referred to

themselves as the “first people”, and lived an aboriginal lifestyle

as hunter gatherers throughout Southern Africa. The KhoiKhoi

or “men of men” were nomadic pastoralists that utilized vast

areas of the present Western Cape to graze their herds of cattle

and sheep. The legacy of both people and especially the spiritual

experiences of the San with their God “Kaggen” are portrayed

in the caves and on the rock faces of Sanbona and provide a

glimpse into the lives of Africa’s original people. Kindly ensure to

Rock Formations and Features:

The geology of Sanbona Wildlife Reserve consists of sedimentary

sandstones, mudstones and siltstones from the Devonian era.

This period was the beginning of life on earth and trace fossils of

forgotten. Rocks progressively eroded and weathered to become

the life bearing soil of the Klein Karoo. Kindly ensure to request
