Plettenberg Bay Optionals

1. Dolphin and Whale Viewing

Dolphin and whale viewing options range from approximately 2 hours to a full day of viewing. The whale season is more or less from June to November. 


2. Township Tour

The duration of the trip is one hour, and a tour guide will tell you more about the history of Golweni. The tour is on foot and you will get the chance to go into one of the houses to see how the people live. You can go to the African guest house to meet bead ladies and buy handmade African jewellery to take home.

All the money earned through township tours help us to help the people in the village financially. All money goes directly back to the community to fund projects like the soccer program for children after school hours and weekend.

3. Game-viewing at Buffalo Hills

You could also choose to do some further game viewing (your last chance on this tour) by taking part in a 4x4 safari or guided game walk in the nearby Buffalo Hills Reserve.


4. Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours

An activity for the adventurous at heart: Enjoy the unequaled beauty of the indigenous forest high up on ten treetop platforms. Gently glide along in a harness along, on steel cables 30 meters above the forest floor.

Birdlife is abundant (including Knysna Loeries and the elusive Narina Trojan), and your guides will explain the ecology of the lush primeval forest. Safety is paramount, and the system has been built to the highest civil engineering standards.

5. Monkeyland and Birds of Eden

Monkeyland is the world’s first free roaming multi-species primate sanctuary and has as one of its aims, to create awareness about the plight of primates and to show that with a greater understanding of our primate cousins, we can all live in harmony.

At Birds of Eden, the Garden Route’s own world-class free-flight bird sanctuary just next doors, a unique two hectare dome (the World’s largest) spans over a gorge of indigenous forest.
