One of Africa's most famous and popular nature reserves has been named as a perfect spot to indulge in whale watching.
Sandra MacGregor, writing for the Daily Telegraph, explains the De Hoop complex – which is accessible to those on South Africa holidays – is a location packed with fascinating wildlife.
Indeed, the reserve claims to provide the world's finest land-based position to view whales from.
About 40 per cent of the planet's southern right population comes to the area – which lies about three hours from Cape Town – to breed, Ms MacGregor notes.
The best news for travellers is that arguably the greatest time of the year to visit is now – December and January – as this is when the highest tourist numbers are recorded, as people strive to take a look at extremely rare species.
