WHALE WATCHING

Every winter pods of whales embark on their annual migration from Antarctica to the South East African coast to mate and calve, one of the lengthiest migrations in the world. The migration to the warmer climate ensures the safety of calves, from their natural predators the Orcas, as well as increases their survival rate in the warmer environmental conditions. They migrate to cold waters in high latitudes to feed and then move on to warmer waters to mate and give birth.

July, August, and September mean whale watching season! Come and experience these ethereal mammals in all their glory while you indulge mind and body on one of the best beaches on the African continent! Combine your whale watching experience with one of our Kosi mouth activities for an experience of a lifetime! Call us now on 072 446 1525 or email us at info@kosi.co.za.
