Cape Whale Coast Hope Spot

Cape Whale Coast Conservation

Cape Whale Coast Logo

From Rooi Els to Quoin Point, the 200 km-long Cape Whale Coast is unique in its combination of rich and abundant biodiversity, spectacular scenery and cultural heritage. Mountains run down to an intricate coastline of estuaries, beaches and bays. Offshore, two major ocean currents come together, as temperate south coast currents meet cold west coast upwellings. 

It hosts many endemic bird species and is regarded as one of the top birding destinations in South Africa. The region is home to a number of iconic animals, including the Marine Big Five: African penguin, great white shark, Cape fur seal, whales (humpback, Southern right and Bryde's) and dolphins (common, bottlenose and humpback).
