Whale Watching in Africa

One of the best land-based whale watching spots in Africa, the quaint seaside town of Hermanus has locals flocking here for the annual Whale Watching Festival, held in September.

South Africa is a whale watching mecca. Seeing the gentle giants of the Atlantic frolicking close to the shore is a mesmerising experience.

What You Need To Know

While land-based whale watching is a popular activity, there are several tour operators that conduct excursions into the open ocean to observe these gentle giants. Always remember to choose an ethical and certified tour operator should you wish to enjoy this experience on your holiday in South Africa. The stars of the festival are the Southern right whales that travel from Antarctica yearly to breed and raise their young.
