About the neighborhood
Gansbaai is now reputed world-wide to be the best place to see and dive with this impressive apex predator.
Surface view or cage dive with the Great White in its natural feeding ground around Dyer Island, just offshore of Gansbaai. The white shark seafari lasts about 4 hours, and begins with a 20 minute boat trip from Kleinbaai Harbour to Dyer Island.

Explore the spectacular Klipgat Cave, which is a 5 minutes walk from the villa. This cave was under water twice in its recent history due to changing climatic conditions. Middle Stone Age people occupied the cave about 60 000 to 50 000 years ago when the sea level was much lower, and the coast was 3 - 7km away. The remains left by these people are amongst the earliest in the world belonging to modern man. During the later Stone Age 2 000 ye...
