WHALE WATCHING EXPLORER (Jun - Nov)

Time will be advised one day prior to tour

whalewatching

Head out to the beautiful little coastal fishing town of Hermanus - recognised by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) as one of the 12 best whale watching destinations in the world!  Walker Bay particularly, is the mating and breeding grounds of the Southern Right Whale during the winter and spring months (from June to November). Southern Right Whales migrate from the Antarctic around June to calve and mate.  Calving takes place in August and September and the males arrive for mating in October when the whale population peaks.  Choose from either land based, boat based or kayak based (for the more adventurous) whale watching and be part of this magical wonder of mother nature.

If time permits, a visit to Panthera Africa can also be included.

Panthera Africa

Panthera Africa is a non-profit,  environmentally friendly sanctuary for any captive bred big cats, where they will be protected and prosper for the rest of their lives.  One of Panthera Africa's main purposes is to be an educational platform where we create awareness about conditions big cats face in captivity, and how animal welfare and enrichment play a vital role in giving them the best captive life possible. They are a true sanctuary where no cub petting, breeding or trading takes place. They are a blue print of how a non-profit sanctuary, focusing on animal welfare, can become self-sufficient, and aim to change all breeding facilities into sustainable ethical projects.

Panthera Africa believes in the connection between both environmental and wildlife conservation, and aims to become the first "green" big cat sanctuary in South Africa, and run solely on solar energy.  They strongly believe in the saying "In union there is strength" - and by standing together, human and animal, they believe in the possibility of a prosperous future for the big cats, and take pride in 'speaking' on their behalf.

Included:

  • Private guide and vehicle
  • Whale Watching experience - boat, land or kayak based
