If you’ve been in Hermanus recently, you might have seen these colorful buses around town.
Ever wondered what they do? We’ve gone this weekend to find out more on what they are all about.
We crossed the road from the Auberge to find the ticket box for the bus. We arranged our tickets, met our guide and took a short walk and hopped on the bus.
First stop was Gearings Point. Great spot for whale watching and a hop skip and a jump from Auberge Burgundy Guesthouse. Look out for the artworks too.
Next we took the coastal drive towards the New Harbour. This is a working harbour, but I’ll leave it to their knowledgeable guides to explain more on that.
From the New Harbour it was on to Zwelihle, our local township. The atmosphere in this community is incredible and specially on a Saturday, you see the braais (BBQ) going everywhere. Here’s a short video clip to give you an idea.
Next up was Rotary way. Here they will tell you more about our indigenous fauna and flora while you get to enjoy the incredible view.
From here we set off to Grotto beach, taking a detour past the Golf Estate and Fernkloof Nature Reserve. We also made a quick stop to spot a whale before we made our last stop at the blue flag beach (Grotto beach). From here we head back to the Old Harbour.
Personally I was very impressed with how knowledgeable the guides where and how friendly all the staff were. Mostly I loved how this tour showed us how Hermanus is more than just whales, but a natural and culture rich community.
PS this is a great way to orientate yourself around town.

Earlier this year we got nominated as a Sanlam Top Destination Awards. After all the votes from you, our valued guests, we got selected as a finalist! The awards ceremony took place on 20 September 2018 at the Bay Hotel in Camps Bay. What a blast this was as we got welcomed with red carpet and pre drinks whilst mingling with the other finalists with a beautiful sunset over Camps Bay in the back drop.
After getting to know everyone and having a few laughs, we moved over to the Rotunda banquet hall for the big event. We got entertained by a proudly south African dance group and had wonderful hosts.
The competition was tough and unfortunately we did not win in our category as 4 star guesthouse, but we are still proud to be selected as a finalist out of whole country for this award. We are most certainly going to keep working towards this trophy.
The last two years I can honestly say was not as great with regards to the number of whales we spotted in the bay. However 2018 has come around and started with record numbers of Southern Right whales. The season runs up until end of November so don’t miss out and book your stay with us by clicking on Book Now
Below is a link to Cape Town etc’s article on this year’s whale watching season.
