Western Cape: The Whale Trail will be closed until 2020!

The famous Whale Trail, which is closed since Januray 2019, will only reopen in 2020 and not in October 2019, as previously planned. Cape Nature, the public institution with the statutory responsibility for biodiversity conservation in South Africa's Western Cape, is implementing extensive renovations on the Whale Trail that will greatly enhance the visitor experience. The renovations include:
  • Provision of overnight lapas
  • Improved user-friendly  and safe route to Stilgat for snorkelling and swimming in the blistering hot seasons
  • Cottages will be solar-powered
  • Refreshing filtered water in your huts, for those hot summer days
