Explore the magnificent Cape Whale Coast Route
Combine the fine wines of the Hemel en Aarde Valley with fresh Atlantic seafood. Cape Rock lobster, oysters, fresh line fish, calamari, prawns and mussels are offered by local restaurants. Tour the wineries of Hermanus, Elgin, Botrivier, Stellenbosch and Somerset West.
Get up close and personal with the Great White in Gansbaai, ride the white waters of the Palmiet River (seasonal) and enjoy seasonal boat based whale watching
Play the fairways walked by some of the world’s finest golfers. Tee off at the Arabella Sheraton Golf Estate or the beautifully appointed 9 hole Kleinmond golf course. A golfer’s visit to the Cape would be incomplete without having played a round at Erinvale, hosts of the 96 World Cup of Golf or 18 holes at the beautifully appointed Hermanus Golf Club.
Discovering the Kogelberg Biosphere, a recently proclaimed UNESCO World Heritage Site is a hiker, mountain biker and casual walker’s delight; mountain trails, sandy beaches, rocky shorelines, rivers and forests. Track down the wild horses of the Bot River Estuary, visit the Jackass Penguin colony at Stony Point or explore nature’s true wonderland at the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens.
