Whales, wedges, wine ….. whatever?

Yep, the Winter season is upon us here in the beautiful Overberg Region of the Western Cape, and what a special season it is.

It signals that the Whales will be with us shortly, fires will be roaring in the hearth’s of the restaurants and accommodation establishments, amazing scenic opportunities present themselves for the avid photographer, and best of all great value for money special offers are abundant during this season.

The weather on some days does tend to keep us indoors, but hey this presents so many new things to do, curl up with a book in front of the fire, enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants or wine cellars, play board games with friends, explore the museums, “sniffle” the bookshops, art galleries, curio stores, or 2nd hand stores for a special item for your house.

Getting outdoors is still an option on many days, play golf at one of our top golf courses, or hike the mountains and view Hermanus from above, listen out for the Hermanus Whale crier, feel that thrill when you spot the whales, take a boat trip, cycle on one of the many bike trails, explore the cliffs or take a walk on the VOS ocean path, go sea kayaking, visit the markets, partake in one of the unique festivals, – relax or be active – the choice is yours!

So what would you choose to do, in Hermanus, our town for all seasons! Image

Southern Africa is my home territory and it is such an amazing place to explore!! Follow my blogs to experience the secrets of this territory, as well as my general thoughts and perhaps even thoughts on our industry. in 2013, Charlise (my wife) and I moved to Hermanus (Sandbaai) situated in the Overberg Region of the Western Cape, South Africa, where we opened a guesthouse which Charlise manages. My management consultancy agency is based on the premises as well. The Overberg region is an amazing destination for all seasons! Not only is it the best land based whale watching, but has one of the best wine routes in the world, unique fauna and flora, activities for young and old, restaurants to suit any palate, world famous artists, and great people who reside in the area. I look forward to interacting with you!
