Not to be missed in the Mother City – Cape Town #1
South Africa is a vast country of great contrasts. In this itinerary we will visit the south coast, where we will get to know the cosmopolitan Cape Town and its surroundings, and in the north of the country we will discover the Kruger area and its private reserves. This itinerary can be completed with an extension to Victoria Falls, with a magnificent cruise on the Chobe River, with a stay on the beaches of Mauritius or Seychelles, or to the wonderful Dubai.
Departure by road to Hermanus, a small village on the coast from where we will embark on our adventure by boat to learn about the world of whales. Our destination is approximately 1 h 30′ from Cape Town.
The whale watching trips are magical. We will be able to enjoy a great spectacle of nature as it is in the months between July and December when we can expect the sighting of southern right whales. It is in that period of time when they return from the waters of the Antarctic Ocean to Walker Bay. During the months of August and September the calves are born and around October the males arrive for mating. Upon completion, transfer to Hermanus for a delicious lunch overlooking the sea and return to Cape Town.
