- Travel · Cape Town

HER­MANUS – This week vis­i­tors to Her­manus will be wel­comed by a table­cloth and bedding ban­ner, dis­played in the Old Har­bour on Fri­day 7 Au­gust.

This “hos­pi­tal­ity flag”, stitched to­gether from clean linen by tourism busi­ness own­ers, sig­ni­fies a warm in­vi­ta­tion to vis­i­tors from across the Western Cape.

Frieda Lloyd, Cape Whale Coast Man­ager, ex­plains the in­no­va­tive ban­ner sig­nals Her­manus is col­lec­tively open for busi­ness. “It also sym­bol­ises the town’s com­mit­ment to of­fer­ing vis­i­tors the best of the Whale Coast in a safe, hygienic en­vi­ron­ment,” she ex­plained

Lloyd says Her­manus boasts world­class tourism ex­pe­ri­ences for do­mes­tic trav­ellers.

The South­ern Right Whales have ar­rived right on cue and the cliff paths of­fer the per­fect view of this re­mark­able an­nual mi­gra­tion. “Res­tau­rants, art gal­leries, ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­i­ties and na­ture re­serves are ready for re­dis­cov­ery,” she said.

“And so is the ir­re­sistibly beau­ti­ful coun­try­side sur­round­ing the town.”

Lloyd adds that the hos­pi­tal­ity es­tab­lish­ments, busi­ness own­ers and their staff have used the Covid 19 lock­down pe­riod to im­ple­ment hy­giene and safety pro­to­cols that en­able vis­i­tors to en­joy the di­ver­sity and nat­u­ral beauty of the re­gion safely.

“The doors and hearts of Her­manus are wide open,” she said. “We can’t wait to wel­come you. We rely on

Capeto­ni­ans and res­i­dents of sur­round­ing towns to take up the open in­vi­ta­tion we have ex­tended. We have missed you and look for­ward to wel­com­ing our loyal friends back.”

Fur­ther­more, Lloyd says as a deterrent against ex­cur­sions to other climes, travel re­stric­tions pro­vide a unique op­por­tu­nity for Capeto­ni­ans and oth­ers to ex­plore places a day’s drive from their own ar­eas, en­abling them to see why Her­manus is a pre­mium tourist des­ti­na­tion of the world.

“Her­manus awaits. See you soon.”
