Although the allure of Cape Town is what brings most visitors to this part of South Africa, a drive along the coast to the town of Hermanus is a must.

It’s one of the few places in the world where you can see Southern Right Whales without venturing out to sea. Even better, you can stay overnight at Grootbos, a private reserve a little further down the coast, and go on a whaling trip.
