Arguably the best land based whale-watching in South Africa.

Just under three hours by car from Cape Town lies 34,000 hectares of conserved fynbos and dunes, not to mention the largest marine protected area in South Africa. This is De Hoop Nature Reserve.

The Southern Right whale is one of the reasons that the De Hoop Nature Reserve is one of the world’s best land based whale-watching areas. This marine protected area is a World Heritage Site and one of the world’s most important nurseries for this endangered mammal. During the winter months (June to November), Southern Right whales come so close to the shoreline that visitors can recline on unspoiled sand dunes, and marvel as these giant mammals calve, blow, and breach before crashing back.

And if whale-watching is not enough, enjoy one of the many hikes, cycle trails, beaches and more.

  • Guided bird walk – (duration +-2 hours) A walking experience with a qualified field guide focused on the identification and behaviour of the prolific birdlife found in De Hoop Nature Reserve.
