Before you go

We recommend that you check the Foreign and Commonwealth office website to help stay safe overseas and to make informed decisions about travelling abroad. You should only travel if you are fit to travel and able to participate in all part of the services that you have booked to undertake.

You will need to comply with the health requirements of your destination, as well as prove that you have any necessary vaccinations for your travel arrangements. Consult your doctor about any health requirements for your destination beforehand and visit IATA Travel Centre to find out what vaccinations you’ll need.

Should you need to take any medication with you, check before travel that you are allowed to take it into the country you are visiting. Some countries do not permit certain medicines even though they may be widely accepted in your own country. Take any paperwork or authorisation from your doctor that may be required.

Millions of people travel the world each year and enjoy trouble free trips but crimes against people and property are a fact of life. It makes sense to take the same responsibility for your own safety abroad as you would do at home.

Here are some tips you may find useful:

Use credit cards where possible to avoid carrying excessive amounts of cash or travellers cheques.
Use the hotel’s safety deposit box if there is one.
Lock your door even when you’re inside your room, but when you leave make sure you close and lock your windows, doors and balconies.
Don’t walk around poorly lit areas and beaches after dark and don’t feel embarrassed about crossing the road if you feel uneasy about someone in the street.
Try to use only registered or official taxis, so ask the hotel for guidance.
Drink responsibly.

Here at you will see one of the only two land based African penguin breeding colonies, with the other being Boulders Beach on the opposite side of False Bay. The abandoned Whaling Station site where 300 whales were once killed annually for their oil (from 1917 – 1930) now gives birth to new life as penguins naturally selected breeding ground. After experiencing the sighting of African penguins, we go to Kleinmond for a refreshing cup of coffee or tea. A half an hours drive later we arrive in Hermanus, arguably the best land-based whale watching location in the world.

We visit Heart of Abalone where we will be provided the opportunity to see how Abagold, a working abalone farm operates. This rock-clinging sea snail is traditionally known for their great taste.

Once the farm walk through is completed, we remove our boots that we were provided with and can now partake in the tasting of this delicasy. The tasting is for your own account and you will be spoilt with a delicious presentation of 3 ways in which abalone can be prepared. After this rare taster we head off to Harbour Rock restaurant.

The beauty of Harbour Rock restaurant is that it is situated on a cliff and overlooks Hermanus harbour from where we will embark on our whale watching cruise.

You’ll first be driven in an air-conditioned minivan to the Company Gardens downtown. There, you’ll embark on a walk toward the city center, strolling past the National Library, Cape Town Parliament, and St. George’s Cathedral. You’ll continue through the heart of the old city where you will find some of Cape Town’s oldest and most prestigious galleries, antique shops, and auction houses, and visit The Cape Gallery flanked by colorful Georgian and Dutch facades.
