The Whale Trail is an unforgettable experience, taking you through one of the Western
Cape’s most unique and diverse nature reserves. The hike starts in the De Hoop
Nature reserve. The route stretches over 55km, from Potberg to Koppie Alleen, with
five overnight stops (hikers spend the first night at Potberg before starting the trail).
The unspoilt natural beauty on this trail is unsurpassable,leading through lush fynbos
and offering stunning views of the coast. De Hoop is known as one of the best landbased
whale watching spots in the world. Between June and November, the coastline
is transpormed as southern right whales migrate here to breed and look after their
young. Unfortunately, children below the age of eight are not allowed on the trail.
The route is fairly strenuous, varying in intensity. Reservations are limited to group
bookings of either six or 12 persons.
