Paradise With Birds and Whales In South Africa

The river mouth in De Mond Nature Reserve invites myriads of birds. Whales follow its coastline to the most southern point of Africa. Enjoy this video footage of this nature paradise.

De Mond is a small nature reserve in the Western Cape of South Africa. This best kept secret lies close to the most southern point of Africa.

Myriads of birds fly towards the sunset as we watch De Mond Nature Reserve from the top of the Dunes. Still we have the pictures of our seven kilometer hike within the nature reserve in our mind when we spotted a Northern Right Wale with its calf following the shore to Agulhas, the most southern point of Africa in the early afternoon.

It was quite a hurdle to be able to book the only cottage in De Mond Nature Reserve. But we’d seen the cottage at an earlier visit and were determined to spend a few days at the best kept secret in the Overberg region of the Western Cape.

At only 954 hectares, De Mond is a small protected area.  The Heuningnes river meanders it’s way through the coastal nature reserve to reach the sea only a few kilometers away from Arniston.

This is my first project using my camera for some film footage. I hope you’ll enjoy and – if you like it, please leave your comment at the bottom of this post and share it with your friends. Thank you 🙂

  1. Wow what an amazing video with some terrific footage. How lucky you are to have witnessed wild life like this. I am wondering where De Mond nature reserve is located ? I don’t think I have ever heard of it…?
