Best Whale Watching Holidays

Posted under Marine Life Blog by Grootbos on 14th September 2012

Spring holiday at Grootbos not only welcomes the rolling hills of blooming Fynbos, there is another show that attracts a ‘larger’ audience. From as early as June the annual migration of the Southern Right Whales seeks refuge in the natural sanctuary of Walker Bay. Hermanus and Gansbaai are world famous for the best land based whale watching of which the De Kelders cliffs is arguably the best of the lot. People are so moved and bewildered by the majestic and peaceful show that the Southern Right performs every year, that boat-based whale watching has become the best way to get up close and personal with these friendly Giants.

Thanks to Ivanhoe Sea Safari’s, one of the operators in the area, we were able to get close and see just how incredible these mammals of the ocean really are. Watch the video then pack your bags, book the flight, fill up with petrol, do whatever you have to do to get here! The Southern Right Whales are here till November, don’t miss it! Grootbos has the best whale watching holiday you could dream of.
