Hermanus During the 2010 Whale Festival.

In 2010, on a trip to Cape Town, South Africa, I was unexpectedly invited to spend a weekend in Hermanus. Hermanus is a popular spot on the South African coast for whale watching. More than that, I was invited there during the annual whale festival.

Hermanus is a bit over an hour's drive from Cape Town, taking either the N2 national road or the coastal route via Pringle Bay, which is very scenic. We did both routes on this trip.
