Where you’ll be

Gansbaai, Western Cape, South Africa

Gansbaai is a working fishing village. It is world-reknowned for land-based whale watching and cage dives to view Great White sharks. Unlike our neighbor across Walker Bay, the town of Hermanus, Gansbaai is not a highly developed holiday destination. But if the Great Outdoors is your aim it offers charm aplenty.
