“Plettenberg Township Tour. Not to be missed.”

Went on this tour today with Hazel as our personal guide. Organised through Ocean Blue. This is simply a tour not to be missed. Hazel lives in the township and she is a wonderful guide. Warm, welcoming and hugely informative. Tour is a walk through the township and a visit to the local nursery school. All funded by the proceeds of such tours.
It's always a dilemma whether to go on these tours but we were reassured that the township benefits directly from the income.
Totally safe so no worries there.
The children were welcoming in their own inimitable way.....with enthusiasm to burn.
Mixed emotions of course but a humbling experience that any visitor to S Africa should have.
Thanks Hazel for making it so special.

We did the boat tour, whale watching, seals and sharks, very interesting, but we appreciated even more the township tour afterwards. Agnes was a great guide and she provided us with a good insight. Thanks to Charlie the owner of Ocean Blue that he provides this opportunity to tourists but also for the township to have this additional income. That's a real social enterprise.

Nice ocean safari. Professionally run. Launch and landing of the boat are fun. The guides can tell you a lot about the sealife that you are seeing. We saw two species of whales, a sunfish, robben and a white shark. Unfortunately no dolphins. Commercial, large boat with lots of people on board. Don't be afraid to take your camera, this can be stored in a dry place if needed.

What an amazing organisation
They had so much knowledge and passion about marine life and its conservation and clearly thought more about the welfare of the stress that could occur to the whales than "earning a fast buck to satisfy the punters"
However they endeavoured to allow people to peek into the private lives of the whales and gave them the treatment of dignity that they deserved
Also their attention to safety is exemplary and did not stop you from being free to move around to get best views
When unable to sight whales it was highly commendable that they spent time informing you about the albatross, skewers and especially kelp gulls and oyster catchers who are do clearly from their information at risk of having nests destroyed by children or uncontrolled dogs on beaches
These trips are a must for any TRUE ANIMAL LOVER -there is always something to learn

During one of our trips to South Africa we were introduced to the Township in Plettenberg. Since then we have been back 3 times, each time we have booked the tour with Hazel. She is a very knowledgeable young lady who takes time to reassure her guests that a conducted tour of her Township is safe, as she lives there she is able to converse with her neighbours and provides a humorous resumee of what was being said. Hazel is very, very friendly and has a vast knowledge. I can recommend the Township tour with Hazel to any visitor.
