Monkeyland opened its doors to the public on the 6th of April 1998. Our unique primate sanctuary is currently the top eco-tourism attraction on the Garden Route and for very sound and sunny reasons.
Penguin Rescue & Rehabilitation
"Penguins are fascinating creatures, intriguing scientists and tourists alike. Whether offering us the mystery and beauty of a 300-metre dive or entertaining us with comic clumsiness on land, these charismatic creatures delight the eye and captivate the heart." - Phil Hockey 2001
Seal Point Lighthouse
Seal Point lighthouse is situated approximately 30 km from Humansdorp and 100 km from port Elizabeth and is home to the tallest masonry building, standing 27.75 meters high. The focal plane is 36 meters above sea level and the light has a range of 28 sea miles.
Scenic Flights
A scenic flight day trip is an absolute must. There are a few charter flight companies in South Africa which offer day trips between some of the country's top destinations and choosing to fly instead of drive will give you the opportunity to cover a large area in a relatively short period of time. One of the best options is a scenic flight over Plettenberg Bay to the Knysna Heads. This relatively short trip is incredibly scenic and provides passengers with a bird's eye view of some of the Garden Route's most scenic coastline.
Heritage Centre
The Heritage Centre situated at Granny's Pool at the bottom of Harbour Road is considered the ecological and historical centre of the Village. The building was originally the National Sea Rescue Institute base and is now the home of the St Francis Kromme Trust - Heritage Eco Centre.
St Francis Yachting Industry
Tag yachts have been assisting the industry Seta (Merseta Metal/ Engineering Related Sector Education Training Authority) with developing an industry training curriculum. As mentioned in previous newsletters, we are one of the few, if not the only boat yard in the country with an ongoing compulsory training program. With this in mind, Merseta contacted us to assist in developing this curriculum. Many other industry players were involved and subject matter varied from basic laminating right through to infusion, electrical systems, plumbing, fairing, painting and design. To me, this is a very exciting development as I can remember pursuing this very cause about 12 years ago!
