Whale Watching in late December

by robaluva

Hi all,

my partner and I are planning to visit South Africa in December next year. We'd like to have some whale watching nearby Hermanus, but we're reading on the internet whale watching in South Africa is done from June to November.

Is that right? Do you think it would not be possible to see whales on late December?

Thank you!

I live in a coastal village where lots of whales are seen in season. Saw the last whale on 11 November this year, but have seen spray far out from the beach even up to this morning. Since 11 November, no photo would definitely have shown a whale. Sorry

The reasons the whale watch cruises are in that particular season is for the simple reason that it is the migration season and the best chances to see them. Other time of the year your chances to see any is close to null.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

This is probably my favorite...

by Norwegianno

This is probably my favorite destination - You gotta get to Table Mountain, Lundadna beach, Most beutiful beach I've evers seen ! See the puingueens , Get out to Cape Point ( obvious choice) -

But : This is one dangerous city, so don't get lost ! Table Mountain , fabulous beaches and Cape Point - drive around the Peninsula ! (and of course my nice encounter with these cute creatures :)

Packing List

by local7460

Cape Town is a very laid back city so, unless you really want to show it off, it is not necessary to pack you tuxedos, etc. It, however, rains a lot(!) in winter (June-July) and an umbrella and a raincoat is a must. It gets equally hot in summer when strong sun block oitments and a hat is strongly advisable. (I have heard that the UV rays in South Africa is six times higher than in summer in Europe. I do not know how true it is but it gives you an idea of the heat and the sun.) South Africa has a very good medical service and most pharmacies would be able to help you with any type of medicine (except prescription medicine). We have had encounters with mosquitos so it may be a good thing to bring some mosquito repellant - Cape Town is not a malaria area. Also bring some medicine for stomach problems - just in case.

St James on Main

by Jenniflower

St James is found between Kalk Bay and Clovelly, just before you reach Fish Hoek (runs along Main Rd) It has a line of brightly voloured dressing rooms on the beach, which seems to be its icon now :)

The last time I was on this beach was Easter morning, 2002. We met up with other people from our local church and had our Easter morning church service out here on the beach at 6:30am. One of the perks of living in such a gorgeous place ;)

Markets are good.

by rachel_sun

My husband bought 3 beautiful paintings that are now hung in our living room.I also bought a pair of African face masks which are now in our hall.
If you like this sort of thing,you will love the bright colorful markets.
I bought a few bottles of Cape wine home also as it was so good.


by Tommys about Vilamoura

One of the classiest restaurants in Cape Town. Proffessional and prompt service from very friendly waitrons. With tables both inside and on the balcony (although in summer these are hard to reserve) - overlooking Camps Bay beach, you can enjoy great food and wine while taking in the breathtaking sunset which dips into the atlantic. The seafood platter. 6 languistines, 2 crayfish, prawns, mussels, calamari and fish on a bed of rice. Out of this world
