Description

Start the day with a beautiful drive along the picturesque Cape coastline, passing through Gordon’s Bay, Pringle Bay and Betty’s Bay en route to the quaint coastal town of Hermanus. This drive is aptly named the “Cape Whale Route” because it is known to have some of the best land-based whale watching in the world.

You’ll head into the historical town of Hermanus, which was once one of the most prominent whaling stations in South Africa. You will be able to watch as these giants of the deep frolic in the waves and launch out of the water to ‘breach’. It is here that you can enjoy lunch at your own discretion.

Once you’ve enjoyed some of the great food on offer in town, it’s off to a wine tasting at Hamilton Russell in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. The estate specialises in producing highly individual, terroir-driven Pinot noir and Chardonnay, which are widely regarded as some of the best in South Africa and among the best in the New World.

The next stop will be Southern Right, founded by Anthony Hamilton Russell in 1994. Southern Right’s aim is to produce a serious, age-worthy Pinotage, and with each bottle sold, they make a contribution to the conservation of these majestic mammals that are now on the endangered species list.

Your last stop will be at Whalehaven boutique winery to taste its French-styled Pinot noir and Chardonnay. Named after the protective bay that shelters breeding Southern Right whales.
