Southern Africa Travel Guide
Different species of whales can be spotted along the coasts of southern Africa throughout the year. The best time to spot whales is when the southern right and humpbacks are visiting. They come as early as July and usually leave, with their new-born calves, before the December holidays. Along the east coast many whales, sharks and dolphins can be spotted during the so-called “Sardine Run”, a natural spectacle that usually takes place between May and July.

Our trip was absolutely awesome. We were treated like royalty and the kids had an absolute blast. Isolated quiet and yet so many things for the kids to do and explore. We had such a great time that the kids are harassing me when we can go back, and that is one thing I will do is go back.
