More info about Cape Whale Coast
South Africa’s Whale Coast could be considered as the area stretching from Betty’s Bay in the north to Gansbaai in the south on this section of the Western Cape Province coastline known as the Overberg (over the mountain). Both Betty’s Bay and Walker Bay are marine protected areas renowned for prime land-based whale watching. Southern Right, Bryde’s and Humpback whales congregate in the bays mostly during calving season, however, whales are generally spotted here throughout the year.
Towns along the whale coast are positioned up against high coastal mountains mostly incorporated into nature reserves. One, the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, is recognised by UNESCO as an ecosystem of international importance.
The Whale Coast is much more than whale watching, the area has a number of attractions in this most scenic part of the world, ideal for a few days’ layover.
