Det skal I lave

I am the "Otter Man" and I grew up in this wild and wonderful part of Africa. I am a Local Tourism Guide and I just love taking guests and friends on my walks. Outdoor walking shoes or sneakers are fine on the gametrails and when we get onto the beach, feel free to take your shoes off to feel the healthy crunchy white beach sand between your toes, or enjoy a quick swim in the South Atlantic Ocean.

We'll meet and greet just inside the pay point at the Cape of Good Hope .(If you are using an Uber to get to the Entry Booms, ask me for a ride back to Simonstown after the Tour). I'll be waiting for you 100 metres past the pay point, on the left shoulder of the only main road in the Park. Cell Reception is not very good here and often its only 2 - 4 in a group, so I will wait for you for at least 20 minutes past the agreed meeting time. We'll quickly say Hi and then we will drive on down to the start of our walk/s.
From here, join me in discovering the unique plants, following the spoor of passing wild animals and experiencing our unique sea life along the seashore and in the rock pools.

Each visit reveals so many more secrets and in Whale Season we may see Humpback, Brydes, Orcas, or Southern Right whales passing close by.
Its nice and warm here, so do remember to bring along your sunblock, sunhat, swimsuit, towel, snacks and water or other liquids.

Her skal du være

We walk down in The Cape of Good Hope, where all is almost undisturbed by human visitors and the sense of inner peace is quite amazing. Visit deserted beaches, old shipwreck sites, slender freshwater streams and meander along winding game trails, away from any tourism bus and coach traffic routes and crowds.
Each walk is carefully chosen by me just before we go , to get the best sightings and enhance your overall experience.

Terry is very passionate about Otters. So if you are too, that’s the perfect tour for you. (If you are not really interested in Otter maybe book another tour.) But note, Otter are wild animals, so don’t expect to see any. I didn’t got to see them.

We've spent a woooonderful morning with Terry in Cape of Good Hope! He's a very interesting and a nice person himself and a knowledgeable guide and animal tracker. The national park is a stunningly beautiful place, a must see if you are a nature lover. There were no other people around, so it was absolutely worse it going for this walk early in the morning. The walk was not very physically demanding, with beautiful views and a lot of sun. Terry told us a lot about the local animals, their habits, and also about his life, which was super interesting and inspiring. We saw ostriches, baboons, antelopes, lots of different birds. Haven't seen the otters but one can never predict the fauna's schedule so we were not frustrated at all. Plus, Terry shared many tips on tracking the otters so we've learned a lot! That's one of my favourite Airbnb experiences so far and I highly recommend it to fellow travellers!

What a fantastic morning we spent. Terry was a totally engaging and knowledgeable host, with really excellent communication skills. You couldn't find a guide more passionate about their subject and we came away feeling we had all learnt new things about the amazing territory, flora and fauna. We didn't see otters but we felt enriched by the whole experience - especially, for me, the wild swimming in the secret pool. An absolute highlight of our trip to SA - and we will definitely do this again.

What a wonderful afternoon spent with the Otter Man! Even though we didn't see any otters we saw plenty of signs they were around! Terry made sure he pointed out all of the indicators that they were there. It was so enjoyable to share in his passion for not only otters but for all animals and nature in general

Great experience with perfect coffee afterwards. We’ve learned a lot about the animals we saw, about the sea and nature in South Africa. Terry was super, very passionate and imparted a lot of knowledge! Unfortunately, we didn’t see any otters :(

Terry is very friendly and knowledgeable, and the walk at Cape Point was beautiful. We didn't see any otters, but I enjoyed the walk nonetheless. However, considering the cost of this experience at this time (770 ZAR) I was left feeling quite disappointed. In addition to the above comes a park entry fee of 300 ZAR (less if you're a SA citizen). You get much more for less on other Cape Town experiences, so just make sure you do your research before you decide which ones to do. The walk in the bay below the Buffelsfontein visitor centre is easily something you can do on your own if you just want to have a beautiful walk in the park away from the tourists.
