Whale Watching

In South Africa, a wildlife adventure need not take place in the bush. With 3000 km or nearly 1900 miles of coast, South Africa is one of the best places to observe sea life, even from shore. South Africa's coastal waters are frequented by more than 2000 species of fish including the most impending, the Great White Shark. Turtles breed on the beach. Dolphin, seals and otters frolic on or near the shore. But for many, the main attraction is likely to be the largest of the marine mammals. Humpback, Bryde's and southern right whales as well as Orcas or killer whales, can all be spotted here. Whether you partake in shore or boat-based whale watching, a trip to the South African coast is unlikely to be forgotten soon.
