"Shelly was absolutely wonderful too … She took good care of me and I felt this wasn't a guest-house but a friend's home. She even invited me to go whale-watching with her friends in Hermanus - can you beat that - an offer I simply couldn't resist!"

Affectionately, Gulabi

ONE CITY - MANY CULTURES

· District Six and Museum

This is a positive and interactive tour, which will afford the visitor the opportunity to meet and speak to the local people. On arrival, tourists often discover that they did not understand the extent to which previous race classification laws fragmented our society. Many people who the visitor originally assumed were defined as black were in fact classified as Coloured or Indian and did not live in the townships but in other designated areas. We take our visitors into the Townships, but preserve the integrity of our tour by also introducing them to the traditional Malay Quarter known as Bo-Kaap as well as Athlone, Rylands and District 6. These areas were defined as Coloured areas with Rylands having being defined as an Indian area.

Each year Southern Right whales, among other species, migrate into the coastal waters to calve and nurse their young.

Harold Porter Botanical Gardens:
A short stopover at this World famous institution on the way to the whales goes down well.

Although the whales migrate to our coast during the period from August - November, they are often seen during the month before and after this period.
