EXPLORE Gansbaai

This modest town of Gansbaai lies in Walker Bay at the bottom of the Dynefontein Mountains, it is situated between Hermanus and Pearly Beach.

The town is named after a flock of wild Egyptian geese that were said to have gathered at the freshwater fountain near the harbour.

Gansbaai is popular for its whale and shark sightings, both the Southern Right Whale and Great White Shark have been known to be frequent visitors to the Atlantic waters of the Danger Point Peninsula. Dyer Island, which is just off Gansbaai id the breeding ground for the African penguin, and many other bird species, Geyser Island is also home to approximately 600 fur seals, and because of the rich population of marine mammals, this makes for a popular feeding ground for endangered species. For those thrill seekers, this spot makes for a great shark diving experience.

Exploring the fynbos and fishing still remain a popular activity for travellers as there are numerous reserves and conservations that have organised hikes. Sticking to the town's fishing routes, travellers can find many restaurants and enjoy the catch of the day.
