Best Whale Watching Safaris

South Africa is one of the best destinations in the world for watching whales and other marine wildlife from land or from boat. See the southern right and humpback whales on their annual migrations.

African Whale Watching Experiences

The Whale Coast, situated close to Cape Town, is the perfect destination to get close to southern right whales on a specialised cruise, helicopter flight or land-based hike. Whale-watching season opens in June every year.

Get Close to the Ocean Giants

Every year, southern right whales migrate from their icy feeding grounds off Antarctica to warmer climates, reaching South Africa in June. The best time for seeing them in South Africa’s waters is from June to November. The Cape south coast teems with these giants as they mate, calve and nurture their young – offering whale-watchers spectacular displays of raw power and elegant water acrobatics.

Learn All About Whales

Your guide will provide insightful and educational information on the ecology, behaviour and current conservation status of whales as well into the research being conducted in our oceans. Leave with a renewed respect for these giants of the deep.

Aerial, Sea or Land-Based Whale-Watching

Choose between land-based, water-based or aerial whale-watching experiences. Jewel of Africa recommends an ocean cruise, which brings you as close as possible to these beautiful mammals. Aerial whale-watching is from a small aeroplane, which provides an eagle’s eye view of the whales undisturbed and unaware of human presence – perfect for photographers. Land-based whale-watching can be done from anywhere along the shore during a hike or stroll along the ocean’s edge.

Top Reasons to Travel to Africa

Africa may be famed for its wildlife, but there are so many more reasons why the continent is rated as a 5-star safari experience.

Wildlife & Game Viewing

While sighting the Big 5 is top of most people’s safari lists, Africa will also introduce you to a fascinating variety of wildlife beyond elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard.

Scenery & Landscape

Cultural Experiences

Learn about the origins of humankind or visit cave paintings made by our predecessors. Africa’s rich cultural heritage adds depth to any Africa safari.

Wine & Dine
