Gansbaai in the Western Cape is not only popular as a shark cage diving destination; it is also home to the historically relevant Klipgat Caves.

These caves were once home to ancient humankind. In fact, the human civilization of this region has been dated to about 80 000 years old. The remnants of their lives that have been left behind provide fascinating and important information about the origin of mankind, their development and our natural and historical context.

The Klipgat Caves themselves are beautiful, and the views that are offered from them exquisite. Look out over Walker Bay and experience the tranquillity that nature provides. The small beach here is great for swimming as it is sheltered and calm. Nearby, De Kelders awaits. This is one of the country’s best whale watching spots.
