Location & Attractions
De Kelders is a popular weekend and holiday destination situated on the southern Cape coast. It is only two hours drive from Cape Town and this rapidly growing holiday destination offers magnificent sea and mountain views.
De Kelders attracts wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world when female Southern Right Whales gather in Walker Bay to give birth to their calves. The whales are often no less than 20 meters from the shore and can be viewed from the apartmentís private balcony from dawn to dusk. A spotting scope is available for precision viewing and guests can also enjoy a barbeque on the balcony by using the apartmentís outdoor modern Weber gas braai.
The area also boasts other wild life including great white sharks, Cape fur seals, dolphins and sea birds. It has beautiful unspoiled white beaches and numerous species of vegetation which attract many sunbathers and nature lovers throughout the year.
Whale Cove complex was literally built on Drip Kelders after which the area was named. The cave has several fresh water rock pools fed from a fresh water fountain. It was regarded as one of the natural wonders of the old Cape Colony and visited by Lady Ann Barnard during 1879.
Not far from the Whale Cove complex is Klipgat Cave, one of the most important cultural assets in the Western Cape. The remains found in the cave date back to between 65 000 and 85 000 years, at a time when the ocean was approximately 5km away from the cave. Such early remains were only found at sites in South Africa and the Middle East.
