A Whale of a Deal: An Excursion with the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town

September 25, 2009 By:Daniel L. Moses

Mount Nelson HotelThere are very few hotels that encourage the outburst, "It's a fluke!", but the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town, Republic of South Africa, is one of the proud few. That fluke, bursting out of the water and identified by your excited eruption and outstretched arm, is the tail fin of one of earth's most magnificent creatures, the great whale that resides in the roiling waters off the coast of southern Africa. The Mount Nelson Hotel, long amongst the leaders in whale-watching excursions from Africa's most cosmopolitan of cities, is offering a package deal that will entice both return travelers and those new to the southern seas. Packages include accommodation, buffet breakfast, personalized tours with all transfers, boat trip and lunch on board, not to mention the continued excellence of Cape Town's renowned Mount Nelson Hotel. With prices starting at only 6,000 Rand per night for this exciting adventure, the luxury property is certainly no fluke.
