Whale Watching in June
 
Seeing a giant, Humpback whale playfully jump out the water 50 metres away from your boat is a life-changing, unforgettable experience. Join Danie (the only legal boat-based whale watching tour operator in St Lucia) as he shows you these majestic animals up close. Stay at Hippo Hideaway and ask Elke to book your whale watching tour.
 
Did you know?
 
Hippos give birth to their babies under water to protect them from falling. As soon as the baby is born it swims upward to get air - so the first thing the baby hippo learns is to swim.
 
A newborn baby weighs about 42kg and hippos are the only mammals that produce pink milk, which is caused by acids in the milk.
 
Hippo Hideaway is a luxury self-catering lodge in St Lucia, on KZN's north coast. Approximately 250km from Durban, it's close enough to escape to for the weekend, yet far enough away to really feel like you're on holiday.
