The whales are back again so let the festivities begin!

Once again the beautiful southern right whales have graced our shores for another 3-4 months of courting, mating, frolicking and doing that thing they know best, PERFORMING! We welcome them back and look forward to our annual dose of nature’s miraculous spectacle.

Every year, for the past 25 years, the Hermanus community has come together to celebrate and welcome the southern right whales in a not to miss calendar event The Hermanus Whale Festival. The Hermanus Whale Festival, brought to you by Two Oceans, is a culmination of arts & culture, events & activities and a down right whale tale of a time! Hermanus, better known as the best land-based whale watching destination in the world, hosts thousands of visitors who flock to the seaside village to experience the unique natural environment, watch the whales play and soak up the music, and vibes during the festival.

Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is offering an amazing special during the whale festival for those that don’t want to stay in amongst the Hermanus madness.
