Starting in Cape Town we will reach Gordon's Bay and will drive through coastal villages such as Betty's Bay.
Between the mountains and the sea is the the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, the center of the coastal Fynbos where the flora is at its richest. Among the many rare plants you might see is the beautiful Red Disa.
We will visit the ruin of an old whaling station and the Penguin Colony at Stony Point.
Once we reach the beautiful sea side town of Hermanus, one of the finest whale watching spots in the world, we will take a boat to get as close as possible to the aquatic wildlife.
