The Overberg region is just an hour and a half over the mountain from Cape Town. Here are some things to do along the Whale Coast and further inland which you should not miss.
We will be more than happy to assist you with BOOKING any activities you would like to do.
Hermanus and whales go hand-in-hand. From about June to December, whales come here to breed. Whale-watching cruise boats take tourists out into the ocean to see whales close-up, or you can view whales from the shore. One can also take a guided sea canoe tour.
There are a number of trusted shark cage diving operators in the Kleinbaai/Gansbaai area. They also take tourist on “Marine Big 5” boat trips. Visitors hope to see whales, sharks, dolphins, seals and penguins on the outing.
The Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven-and-Earth) wine valley up the R320 road from Hermanus is becoming one of the premier wine routes in the Western Cape area, as are the farms around Stanford and Elim. Birkenhead Brewery outside Stanford has a popular micro-brewery - the public is welcome to visit.
There are many dams on the farms in the area where you can fish peacefully.
You can take a leisurely river cruise from Stanford down the Klein River.
Not far from our farm, you can find the Panthera Big Cat Sanctuary. Lions, tigers and other big cats that have been rescued find a home there. It is open to the public to visit.
In the greater Overstrand area there are many activities for the adventurers among us.
- Quad bike, motorbike and 4x4 nature trails
- Paintball games
- Target shooting/archery
- River tubing and white water rafting
South Africa is known for it's outdoor-loving people and the Whale Coast is no different. Here you find mountain bikers, trail runners, horse riders or hikers in the mountains and nature reserves around the area.
For those who like to escape the bustle of life on the ground, Hermanus offers tourists plane trips. From the small plane, you can spot the whales and other marine life from above.
