Whale Watching at iSimangaliso

Safari Experiences

Witness the wildlife wonder of whales on an exciting boat ride upon the Indian Ocean. Gracing us with their presence from June until the end of November, a sighting of these humpbacked whales along their migratory route is an honour. One may also have the privilege of seeing calves swimming alongside their mothers; an unforgettable ocean experience when whale watching.
