I’ve worked as both wedding photographer and corporate photographer at this spectacular place a couple of times and decided to show you a bit more about this stunning property via a “Best of Bona Dea” post. With an average travel time of a mere 1h 20min from Cape Town International Airport, the Cape Whale Coast has been a popular tourism hotspot for many years. Perhaps best known for it’s whale watching and wine farms, the area has something for everyone with adventure sports, numerous art galleries and markets. Also close by in Gansbaai those who are not faint at heart can enjoy shark cage diving. Hermanus is thus an ideal area to accommodate your guests for extended stays, especially those traveling from international destinations wanting to see more of the area.

Only 90 minutes’ drive from Cape Town lies the wonderful seaside village of Hermanus, overflowing with charm and pleasures for young and old. Nestled at the foot of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, just a stone’s throw from Hermanus, lies the award-winning Bona Dea Private Estate.
