About the Location

During the whale watching season (June to December), Hermanus comes alive. This area has some of the best land based whale watching anywhere in the world but you can also enjoy an ocean safari and get up close to these magnificent mammals as they come into Walker Bay to calve. You are also close to the Hemel en Aarde wine route where you can visit two of South Africa’s top wineries, Hamilton Russell and Bouchard Finlayson. Whale Rock lodge is very close to a restaurant very popular with locals – The Harbout Rock which is known locally as The Rock. This is in New Harbour which is a relatively short walk and here you can sample some excellent freshly caught seafood, including great sushi, together with local wine and beer.
