Focus on Witsand, Western Cape, South Africa
is a beautiful small village that lies on St Sebastian Bay. St Sebastian
Bay on the Cape South Coast is by far the most important nursery area for
Southern Right Whales on the African Coast.
Aerial surveys indicates that the Right Whale cow-half pairs in St Sebastian Bay may be the largest assemblage in the world, with the possible exception of the Peninsula Valdes region of Argentina.
As Witsand is only a 3 hour drive from Cape Town it is a welcome stop
on your Garden Route tour. From here visitors are within easy reach of
the Malgas Pont, De Hoop Nature Reserve, Heidelberg, Swellendam, the Bontebok
Park, Barrydale, Ashton, Robertson Wine Route and Montague before moving
onto the greater Garden Route area.
