OUTDOOR ACTIVE

Whether you come to Gansbaai to fish, dive, ecotour, or simply to experience the beauty of the great outdoors, it’s well worth the time to discover more… Whether you want to test your mettle in a remote background setting or enjoy a peaceful family-style get-away, you will find your choice here in Gansbaai.

Gansbaai is an area of contrast and there is much to discover… It is situated in the center of a number of small bays with miles of unspoiled beaches; nature reserves with over 1500 species of Fynbos; ancient Milkwood forests; rocky inlets; caves and spectacular views across Walker Bay.

Surely not just a visit…but an adventure!
