Gansbaai is part of the Cape Overberg region that lies on the southernmost tip of Africa. It is a part of the world where nature is still pristine and its abundance can be enjoyed without any effort at all.
The land is covered with fynbos, the sea is an incandescent blue, the beaches are immaculate and the air pure. Marine and bird life abound in this temperate environment. You can simply sit on the deck and you’ll see the whales in the bay and a myriad of birds.
From July till December the magnificent Southern Right Whales migrates to Walker bay to give birth and mate. The De Kelders cliffs are arguably one of the best spots in the world for land-based whale watching.
Gansbaai has earned the title ‘Great White Shark Capital of the World’ through its large white shark population and jaw-dropping shark encounters.
It is said that after Kruger National Park, the great white sharks attract some of the highest numbers of tourists to South Africa for any single activity.
Klipgat Cave is located in the Walker Bay Nature Reserve, next to De Kelders. It is only of three places in South Africa where remains of sheep-herding Khoi people have been excavated. Klipgat Cave is one of the most important historical sites in the Western Cape. The reserve and the cave are open to the public.
