Whale-watching in South Africa - one of the most exciting activities in some of the most beautiful destinations in the world. The South African Whale Route stretches from Paternoster/Saldanha Bay on the West Coast (Atlantic), south around the Cape of Good Hope, and some 2,500 kilometres northeast to Kosi Bay in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (St. Lucia), a World Heritage Site, just south of the Mozambican border on the Indian Ocean.
Southern right whales leave Antarctica in May/June, and swim thousands of kilometres to mate, calve and entertain whale-watchers along the coast. When they leave the humpback whales arrive with their calves. This book offers visitors and enthusiasts all they need to know to plan a whale-watching trip - and will teach you the meaning of blowing, breaching, lobtailing, spy-hopping and grunting!
