Le Baleines welcomes you to Hermanus, the Overberg, Western Cape and South Africa's whale watching capital. Come and breathe the champagne air, soak in the sun, taste the rainbow nation's food and wine, with a promise to return very soon.

"Ex Africa semper aliquit Novi." Out of Africa always something New.



Ultimate whale watching organized by Les Baleines. Hikes and jogging routes can be planned individually. Cold winter days are our specialty - huge log fires and fine red wine. For the more adventurous, shark viewing and cage diving can be arranged. 


The residence hugs the mountain on the one side and overlooks the ocean on the other. On the inside the splendor flows as a natural extension and inspiration from it's glorious surroundings.
