If the wide open road is calling and you want to combine it with some spectacular whale watching as only South Africa's Southern Coast can dish it up,September through to November is the ideal time.
September is the height of whale watching season in the coastal Overberg region, so head out along the super scenic Clarence Drive between Gordon’s Bay and Rooi Els, pulling over ever so often to seek out the gentle giants of the deep as they blow, spy hop and breach.
From here wind your way further along the coast and maybe hop on board a whale watching boat in Gansbaai or a kayak in Hermanus.
Whale sightings are of course the main attraction and in celebration of this, the Two Oceans Hermanus Whale Festival set to take place from 29 to 30 September this year.
