Day 2: Port Elizabeth - Plettenberg Bay

Drive to the fashionable coastal town of Plettenberg Bay. Plettenberg Bay boasts miles of beautiful sweeping golden beaches, a dramatic rocky peninsula and is one of the world’s best spots for Whale Watching. We highly recommend an Ocean Safari in Plettenberg Bay in search of Bottlenose and rare Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphins, as well as certain shark and whale species. Also consider visiting Monkeyland where a monkey safari within a lush indigenous forest is conducted by an experienced game ranger. Or visit the Birds of Eden, a bird sanctuary located within a two hectare dome spanning a gorge of forest.
