Travel Tips for Hermanus


by mvtouring

Could be done as day trip from Hermanus approx 40 min drive.
Named after Sir George Grey, Governor of the Cape was established in 1846. Many of the original buildings have been restored and today houses café’s, shops and restaurants. There are many walks around Greyton and into the surrounding nature reserve with its birdlife and fynbos. When you enter this village, you are reminded of an olde English village almost. The main street is line with majestic old oak trees and “lei” water canals carrying mountain water into the residents many ponds. This village offers you lots of space to do many things, ultra fresh air, tranquility, peace and last but not least quiet.

Hermanus - The Town for Whale Watching

by mikelisaanna

Hermanus is a town in South Africa that is famous for its whales. During the winter months, whales swim around the waters near Hermanus, and are frequently visible from the shore. Hermanus actually has a town Whale Crier, whose job it is to let everyone know when a whale has been spotted from the shore.

We went to Hermanus as a day trip from Cape Town, about two hours' drive away. After driving to Hermanus, we did a three-hour tour (like the folks on Gilligan's Island) on a whale-spotting boat, and then spent some time exporing the town before heading back to Cape Town. Our boat found four groups of whales, and we got some great views of them. It was worth every cent that we paid for the tour.

I stopped in Hermanus briefly on the way from Cape Town to Knysna. It is a pleasant enough place with nice cliffs from which to look out upon the ocean.
Hermanus is famous for whale watching but I was not there at the right time of year. Around September it is possible to see lots of Southern Right whales from up close.
