Your ecological adventure begins with an exciting beach launch from Plettenberg Bay, and heads east past the bird sanctuary and beautiful Keurbooms beach to the famous Arch Rock. One usually encounters large groups of Bottlenose and small pods of the rare Indo- Pacific Humpback dolphins, as well as certain shark species here. From Arch Rock we head out into the middle of the bay, where pelagic seabirds are normally found about 7km off shore. In addition, resident Bryde’s whales, Common dolphins, Southern Right and Humpback whales, and even occasional Orcas can usually be seen (seasonal).

We then traverse the bay to the point of Robberg Peninsula and out to the wild side, often seeing groups of whales and pods of dolphins. Cruising back along the inside of Robberg, the unique geology from this unusual viewpoint and the growing Cape Fur seal colony can be closely observed. Finally we head back along Robberg beach, while a brief rundown on the history and shipwrecks of the area is given. After passing the Beacon Island Hotel (built on the site of an original Whaling Station) we end the experience with an exhilarating beach landing on Central Beach (Plettenberg Bay).

After refreshments, we travel up the Indian Ocean seaboard to Monkeyland which affords us an opportunity to enjoy a monkey safari within an indigenous forest, conducted by an experienced game ranger. On this safari, you can expect to see numerous species of primates ranging from the gibbons of Asia, and howlers from South America, to the lemurs of Madagascar. All of these species behave, feed and live in as natural an environment as possible. At Monkeyland one is privileged to be able to step into their world to explore and learn fascinating facts about these primates first hand.

After a traditional lunch at Monkeyland, visit the Bird’s Of Eden sanctuary. This is a unique two hectare dome (the world’s largest aviary), which spans a gorge of indigenous forest. The sanctuary has its own mysterious ruin, incorporating a walk behind a waterfall. Its dome has the ability to synthesize thunder and create short spells of rain from an irrigation system in the structure. Roofed viewpoints within the gorge have been erected for use during the brief rain storms. Bird’s of Eden arises from the need to create a safe environment in which to release a large collection of free-flying birds. This concludes this adventure, and we return to our hotel.
