The most Epic two days in Hermanus
Roadtrip to Hermanus
Biltong. Biltong. Biltong. The most important part of any roadtrip in South Africa. Wondering what Biltong is? Biltong is a form of dried, cured meat that Americans would know as Jerky. Check out Peregrin Farm Stall on the road to Hermanus.
Township, New Harbour & Tidal Pools
And so our day in Hermanus officially begins… We start off slow by stretching our legs with a walk through the local township. We are introduced to the ladies that run an organisation that hopes to improve the quality of life for the residents on the Township. After that we head on down to the New Harbour to see what it has to offer… Then to cool off we went to go find a pretty cool tidal pool!
Limos, Quads & Wine
Things start to heat up as we get picked up in a limo, head off to SA Forrest Adventures for a day that is about to get epic!
Three Dams, Walker Bay & Shopping
Day 2 starts off with a beautiful hike in the mountains right by Hermanus. After breakfast we explore Walker Bay on our Skateboards and end up on a crazy retail therapy spin through the little shops of the town.
Sea Kayaking & the beautiful scenic drive home
All good things must come to an end, before we do them all over again. The last activity on our “things to do in Hermanus” shoot list was hopping on a sea kayak to go try find some whales. While Darren was out with Steph Dean found some crazy school kids jumping off the cliffs.
The good thing is the drive home is pretty stunning. Check it out.
Seizethecity had a two day adventure with Tanya from I LOVE HERMANUS. We didn’t get to see any whales but we still had a fantastic time. We were pleasantly surprised at how much Hermanus has to offer… have you watched the videos yet?
This old fishing village lies in the Overberg of the Western Cape, about an hour & half’s drive from Cape Town. Hermanus is one of the best and most well known places in the world to do whale watching. During the months of August to December the Southern Right whales come play in the waters around Hermanus. The seaside cliffs near Walker Bay provide some of the best vantage points to watch the whales from above.
We met up with Tanya from I LOVE HERMANUS who organised a number of activities for us to see Hermanus and prove that this little town at the sea has much more to offer than just whale watching.
