If you are staying at Birkenhead House, chances are high you will catch a glimpse of some incredible wildlife right from the back deck. But if you want to get up close and personal you can schedule a boating tour to get up close and personal with the Southern Right and Humpback whales. The best time for viewing the giant, aquatic mammals is June through December which coincides beautifully with on-land safari season.
Feeling adventurous? Make a plan to work in a shark cage dive to see some of South Africa’s biggest and baddest fish – Great Whites! If that sounds a little to hectic for you, consider a short drive into the wine country for some tastings or maybe even a bit of golf.
