A record 1 347 whales off De Hoop coastline

Whales off De Hoop coastline

De Hoop Nature Reserve, on the Southern Cape coast, is probably most famous for its iconic Whale Trail. And this past weekend well-known Marine Conservation Photographer, Jean Tresfon affirmed just how incredible the spot is for whale watching. Tresfon, together with whale scientist Chris Wilkinson were conducting an aerial whale survey for the Mammal Research Institute Whale Unit.
They lifted off early on Saturday morning from the Morning Star airfield into the crisp clear air and almost immediately encountered southern right whales. But it was when they reached the De Hoop Nature Reserve area that they were just blown away.

Herold Wines

Herold Wines

The vineyards and cellar of Herold wines lies just beyond the top of the historic Montagu Pass which winds its way up the Outeniqua mountains above George. Wine is made and bottled on the farm and besides grapes, blueberries are also cultivated and there is a young beef herd. A walk through the vineyards to observe the men practising their vine management skills is fascinating followed by a cellar tour including wine tasting . Learn how Herold Wines are made then enjoy a light lunch or tea in the cellar lovingly prepared by Ingrid. Other activities available on the farm include swimming or paddling on the dam or river pool, bird watching or cycling on the farm roads. One can also find a special picnic spot alongside the mountain streams and there are many nature walks and hiking trails as well as the mini labyrinth above the underground bottle cellar. An hours drive from George, this is a perfect base from which to explore all the Garden Route and Klein Karoo have to offer. The farm is open to the public for tastings and cellar tours from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.
