Thembe is the daughter of the 3rd southern right whale to be identified in South African waters. She has a beautiful colouration pattern which includes extra white blazes against her partial-grey colour.

She had her first calf when she was six years’ old – which is relatively young. After her first calf, she wasn’t seen with another for eight years. This suggests that she may have had at least one miscarriage or a delayed pregnancy, which is not surprising given her young age.

She has since had four calves which indicates that she is healthy.

Thembe’s favourite cruising spots along the South African coast are De Hoop and Walker Bay.
