Submitted: 07 July 2008

The Hermanus Whale Festival is an annual event that is held in the bustling coastal town of Hermanus, affectionately known as South Africa's "whale town". Hermanus is situated a mere one-and-a-half hour drive from Cape Town and the scenery en route is breathtaking. Hire a car from Cape Town with Drive South Africa and enjoy some of South Africa's most awe inspiring views!

The Southern Right Whales frequent the coast of South Africa roughly from late July through to December during their breeding season. This year the Hermanus whale festival will be held from 24 September to 28 September 2008.
