South Africa holidays
Set off early this morning from Cape Town for the 2-hour transfer to Kleinbaai harbour at Gansbaai, the launch pad for whale-watching cruises in this area. After an introductory talk, depart for Dyer Island, which is situated 8km from the shore. This protected island is home to a large variety of birds including African penguins, Cape gannets and giant petrels. Adjacent is Geyser Rock, home to 60,000 Cape fur seals, while the channel between these two islands is known as Shark Alley as great white sharks cruise the waters here in search of their favourite prey. In and around these waters are strong numbers of Bryde's whales and humpback whales, as well as dolphins. Return to shore and enjoy a warm drink while watching a DVD of your day before returning to Cape Town.
