Visited south Africa for the for the first time, what a beautiful place and what lovely people.We made our own fly drive, flew into cape town where we stayed two nights and then toured some of the garden route, but basically we went where we fancied anyway whilst on our travels we came across a fabulous place in Gansbaai called ON THE ROCKS. Well where do I start... firstly I would like to compliment the owners for our stay there, we have never in all our travels been made to feel more welcome, nothing was too much trouble. The en-suite room which we stayed in was called the Africa room it was tastefully decorated with balcony which over looked the bay which was amazing not only for the view but one of the main things I wanted to see when visiting south Africa were the whales, and boy did I see them morning, noon and night, no binoculars were necessary its something in my life that I will never forget. On the rocks has its own swimming pool which we took advantage of and also has its own enclosed private parking. The breakfasts were second to none and were served in a breakfast area once again overlooking the bay. We found on the rocks to be spotlessly clean and tidy, we would not hesitate to suggest to folk to give them a visit. We only intended to stay for one night but ended up staying for 4 nights would have stayed longer given the chance but alas our holiday was nearly at an end, but what a fantastic time we had
