Location Description
General info

Gansbaai in South Africa is the Mecca of the marine "Big Five". On one day you may see all five of them: The Great White Shark, apex predator of the sea, several species of whales, weighing up to sixty ton, schools of different dolphins chasing sardines and anchovis, the Cape Fur Seals, knowns as one of the oceans best hunters and the funny African penquins. Let us make you a booking for the shark cage diving or an echo trip where you can see the "Big Five" in one session. Canoeing with the whales is worth trying from the beautiful town of Hermanus, close to Gansbaai. Our beautiful hiking trails offer you opportunities to walk along the cliffs of Walker Bay and see the Southern Right whales breaching right in front of you. Long stretches of beaches will give you a chance to relax and enjoy our floral beauty. All this can be done from our front door on foot. Visit the ancient caves of De Kelders or enjoy a familiy picnic on one of the nearby beaches. For the birdlover this is a paradise to explore and for the nature and floral visitor our region is known for the more than 1500 secies of fynbos and plants. If wine tasting is your forte our region offers some of the best cultivars of white and red wines. Many wine farms have restaurants and give you an experience in wine, cheese and chocolate pairing you will never forget. The many restaurants close will have you taste our region's best fish and wine. For the fishermen charters offer fishing trips or just catch your own fish along one of our beaches. Horseriding is a nearby activity as well as mountain biking for the more active visitor. Use our mountain bikes or hire a fat bike and explore the sand dunes and fynbos of De Plaat in the Walker Bay Nature Reserve. There is really a lot to do in Gansbaai and road trips in the Overberg will take you to Cape agulhas, the most southern point of Africa or De Hoop nature Reserve with certainly the best sightings of Southern Right whales giving birth to their six ton calves.
