This picturesque circular tour takes you from Cape Town to the seaside town of Hermanus. The road makes its way through Sir Lowry’s Pass, a scenic mountain pass that crosses the Hottentots-Holland Range. At the start of the pass you can look back for a panoramic view at the low-lying area that stretches out towards Cape Town. Nestled between mountains and sea, the town of Hermanus is not only very beautiful but offers some of the best land-based whale watching opportunities in the world (August-November). Close sightings of the Southern Right whale are likely, as they come into the bay seeking sanctuary in the cold winter months. You will be taken on a panoramic drive along Rotary Way and will explore the heart and centre of Hermanus. You can also choose to enjoy a boat-based whale watching excursion (for own account) or tour the town.

On the drive back, we will continue to Bouchard Finlayson Wine Estate for a wine tasting on this prestigious vineyard. which presents further possibilities of whale (and even dolphin) sightings. On Sundays, a stop is made at Stony Point near Betty’s Bay to see the penguin colony (optional, for own account & time permitting). It also holds one of only two land-based penguin colonies in South Africa. You will be able to see these enthralling birds at play via a well-constructed wooden walkway. After a day exploring the charming towns and amazing marine life in Cape Town and surrounds, we will return to the Mother City.
