The flowers are starting bloom, the pollen is starting to fill the air and the temperature is starting to rise.
Don't forget that the whales are peaking their heads out of the water too. South Africa, and the African continent more generally, is filled with great locations and destinations for you to check out all the breaching action. So if viewing the gentle giants of the oceans sounds like your idea of fun - read on.
These are the top spots to see all the action:
The West Coast
On the Cape West Coast, excellent sightings of southern rights can be enjoyed all the way from Strandfontein to Lambert's Bay, Elands Bay, St Helena Bay, Saldanha Bay and Yzerfontein, just north of Cape Town. Even in the bays of Cape Town southern right whales are frequently spotted. If you’re one of the lucky few, you may even see them from the road along the False Bay coast, or on the scenic coastal Victoria Road. If you don’t want to rely on luck, book a trip with the pros.
