Photograph of the week: Whale watching in Walker Bay, South Africa

 

Every year the Walker Bay in South Africa welcomes the annual migration of Southern Right Whales to its shores. These gentle giants are attracted to the natural sanctuary the bay provides so that they may mate and calf with one another. The internationally awarded Grootbos Private Nature Reserve offers its guests the opportunity to see the whales from land, boat or small plane. The land-based whale watching is the best in the world as you can see two guests enjoying a luxuriously prepared picnic while the whales play in the background.

Thank you to Grootbos Private Nature Reserve for permission to re-produce the image.

    This is a beautiful photo!I would love to see this someday! I’ve heard so much about the annual migration, and luckily it’s not such a short migration, and they travel quite a distance along the South African Coastline. We usually see them along the coast near Wilderness during December. We are planning a trip to the Cape again next year, and I will keep Grootbos in mind when booking.

    What a fantastic pic! Grootbos is truly a ‘one of a kind’ venue and it’s really great that it is being showcased here in the photograph of the week.
