Franskraal is a coastal village situated near Gansbaai at the mouth of the Uilikraal River.
The villages are only over 2 hours from Cape Town and it is one of Cape Town’s holiday makers’ favourite getaway destinations. The village is loved for its uninterrupted views of the sea on the beachfront and swimming and ambling on the coastlines is also enjoyed.
