Bird- and Whale/Dolphin-Watching

Oubaai Hotel, Golf & Spa’s whale- and dolphin-watching from the whale-viewing deck, which offers a 180-degree view of the Indian Ocean, makes this a popular venue for a picnic. There is also a bird-watching hut where a variety of birds indigenous to the Garden Route can be seen. South Africa is one of the best destinations in the world for watching marine mammals, with spectacular annual visits from Southern Right and Humpback whales, and enormous pods of dolphins on view year-round. Every year, Southern Right Whales migrate from their icy feeding grounds off Antarctica to warmer climes, reaching South Africa in June.

The Garden Route, from Stilbaai through Mossel Bay and on to George, Wilderness, Knysna and Tsitsikamma, is generally a magnificent stretch of coastline hosting Southern Right Whales in their season, Humpback Whales between May and December, Bryde’s Whales all year round and, occasionally, Killer Whales.

Only golf carts have access to our popular whale-viewing deck.

South Africa’s Garden Route offers unique birding opportunities, with a diverse range of habitats, and is home to approximately 300 species of birds, making it an ideal destination for bird-watching when making travel plans in South Africa. The resort offers a bird-watching hut where you become one with nature as you watch these birds in their natural habitat.

The 6th hole is a par 3, with the green framed by the Outeniqua Mountains in the distance and the Gwaing River flowing below you. A 120-metre drive is required to cross the gorge and reach the fairway, displaying the beauty of our Garden Route hotel.

The 17th is the most photographed hole, where the green meets the ocean. The green is guarded by 4 bunkers with ever-changing winds, making it one of the most challenging plays. The course is designed to be enjoyed by golfers of all abilities.
