HERMANUS & BETTY’S BAY
Explore the coastal towns of Hermanus and Betty’s Bay on a whale-watching, wine-tasting, and penguin encounter.
You’ll start in the coastal town of Hermanus. Here, you have the opportunity to spot Southern Right whales. Between July and November they migrate from the Antarctic for breeding. This time is the heart of winter in South Africa, so make sure you’re dressed warmly.
After a quick breakfast, we’ll transport you to the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. It will not take much for you to understand why it’s called the “Heaven-and-Earth” Valley. The fertile soil and unique climate have transformed the area into a wine cornucopia. A visit to Creation Wines will please your appetite and afford you incredible images.
In the afternoon, we’ll head to Betty’s Bay. This is another sleepy, seaside village with breathtaking views and a relaxed vibe.
The nature-lover in you will be at home here. The magnificent Harold Porter Botanical Gardens is a sight to see if you’re wanting to stretch your legs. The garden is walkable in three to five hours, along pretty laid-out paths and hillside trails. This is the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, due to the diversity of fynbos, and has remained unspoiled. Finally, you’ll go see the penguins at Stony Point. This allows you to observe the African penguins in their natural habitat.
