Whale-watching

Between July and November, the Southern Right Whales travel to the tip of South Africa to calve in the shallow water just off land. If you want to see this extraordinary spectacle this is the best time to visit places like Walker Bay and Plettenberg where you will see these gigantic mammals from the beach! 
Boat trips out to watch great white sharks, seals and the famous penguins around Boulders Beach are available throughout the year.

Leatherback and Loggerhead turtles begin nesting in November and hatch out in about March in certain places from East Africa right down into South Africa – many of which are protected by conservation projects.
