Plettenberg Bay

Ocean Safari

There are a number of suppliers who offer boat trips into Plettenberg Bay. The best of them are licensed for close encounters with the marine animals and so you can get very close to them.

By using a combination of hydrophones and sharp eyes, they will attempt to get you in among the whales (in season, July to December), dolphins and seals that swim in the bay, sometimes surfing the waves. These ocean safaris are quite exciting as they involve beach launches and landings, crossing through the surf.

    This taster to the Karoo Desert is a beautiful place, not quite as harsh or barren as the Karoo, but still stark and impressive. The climate proved ideal for rearing ostriches, and thanks to the Victorian craze for ostrich feathers, the town of Oudtshoorn flourished.
