The Gansbaai Area
Gansbaai is famous for Great White Shark cage diving and Whale Watching. It is a favourite holiday destination among South Africans as well as international visitors. The wine routes are relatively young and still developing. Many of the wine farms are small scale and family run, off the beaten track. Some farms are accessible by dirt roads and set in rustic settings with fabulous views and wine farm hospitality.
