General Information on Gansbaai

Gansbaai is situated in the Overberg region of the Western Cape.  Get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life and visit the natural unspoiled beauty of Gansbaai with its warm and friendly people.  Gansbaai at De Kelders has one of the oldest associations with man at Klipgat Cave where remains have been excavated showing modern man living there more than 70,000 years ago.  The cave is open to visitors daily.

From the spectacular cliffs of De Kelders to the miles of white sandy beaches of Pearly Beach, you will find one of the most unique and astonishing land-based whale watching spots in the area.

At Dyer Island the mysterious and graceful Great White Sharks have drawn visitors from across the globe, making Gansbaai the Great White Shark capital of South Africa. In the same vicinity just off Shark Alley, you will find an abundance of seals, being the hot spot for great whites, not to mention the Penguin colony of Dyer Island.  Famous for its shark cage diving, Gansbaai offers this unique experience throughout the year.

Gansbaai is situated in the center of a number of small bays with miles of unspoiled beaches and nature reserves with approximately 1500 species of Fynbos, ancient Milkwood forests, rocky inlets, caves and spectacular views across Walker Bay. 

The village has two harbours where many fishing trawlers and boats come and go daily, supplying fresh catches to fishmongers and local restaurants.  This is crayfish country with an annual Crayfish Festival over Easter, along with many other great events throughout the year.  ​
