Cape of Good Hope
Our itinerary takes us along the Cape Peninsula, set between two oceans, one warm one cold. Encounter seals, penguins and explore the mythical Cape of Good Hope, one of the most beautiful peninsulas in the world. End the day visiting the magnificent Kirstenbosh gardens, a botanists dream.
Close encounter – Sharks or Whales
The whale route is a discovery in itself. From June to November the Southern Right Whale makes this part of the world its home. Hermanus is famous for the being one of the best areas in the world to observe these mighty creatures from the land.
Take the plunge, this is great white country. Gansbay, a breeding ground for Great White Sharks, is just 160km out of Cape Town and here, even inexperienced divers can observe the great white shark up close and personal from the safety of a galvanised cage attached to the boat. For those who prefer not to get into the water, enjoy the view from the boat, it is just as impressive
Close encounters of the African kind must come to an end. Our services end when we drop you off at the airport and wish you good bye from our beautiful country
