TOUR HIGHLIGHTS EXPLORE CAPE TOWN AND BEYOND
Table Mountain National Park defines the city of Cape Town. The flat-topped mountain is the headline act, but there are many other equally gorgeous natural landscapes within the park’s extensive boundaries. Wrenching yourself away from the magnetic mountain and all the delights of the Cape Peninsula is a challenge, but within an hour you can exchange urban landscapes for the charming towns, villages and bucolic estates of Winelands destinations, such as Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
WHALE MIGRATION IN HERMANUS
This coastal resort offers the best land based whale watching in the world. The Southern Right Whales visit Walker Bay from July until December every year. About 60 to 100 of these magnificent animals come here from Antarctica to breed and rear their young. Tourists are often treated with close up displays as these creatures often come to within 10 meters of the coast. The cliff tops in Hermanus offer tourists great views and the ability to watch the whales close up.
GARDEN ROUTE NATURE ADVENTURE
The Garden Route is a mix of modern golf courses, ancient forests, secluded artists’ communities, retirement estates, modern malls, craft centres, mountain hideaways and beach holidays. A large number of interesting and creative people drawn to this magnificent stretch of coastline have made it home. The main arterial highway through The Garden Route in South Africa, a highlight on most visitors’ itineraries, is the N2 stretch running from Heidelberg in the Southern Cape to Storms River Village on the Eastern Cape border. While the Garden Route road is extremely scenic, it is the hidden destinations on its side roads that are the secret of this region.
