Enjoy the annual Whale Festival in Hermanus

Hermanus Whale festivities

Just an hour and a half car drive away from Cape Townis Hermanus. And every year at the end of September Hermanus is in celebration. It is the Whale Festival!

This Festival celebrates the return of the Southern Right whales. These whales come to mate and calve in the warmer waters of Africa, which gives us people the opportunity to observe and admire these amazing creatures. And Hermanus is one of the best whale watching destinations in the Western Cape.
