Hermanus Whale Route with private guide


The coastal town of Hermanus lies between the fynbos-covered mountains and the waves of the Atlantic - and is said to be one of the world's best land based whale watching spot (best from August - November). It forms the centre of the Cape Whale Route and is surrounded by a conservation area.

Departing for Cape Town, you have an option of visiting the Hermanus Wine Route for a tasting.
We drive back towards Cape Town via the Grabouw area - well known for apple production.
About twenty minutes later we cross Sir Lowry's Pass - sporting unbelievable view
