De Kelders / Gansbaai

The magnificent, unspoilt coastline of De Kelders, just outside Gansbaai is one of the best vantagepoints in the world for land-based whale watching. The southern right whales visit our shores each year between June and December to mate and calve.

You will be able to see and hear these magnificent creatures from Cliff Lodge. You can also enjoy a 2-hour boat trip to come up close and personal with a southern right in its natural habitat - a truly exhilarating experience.

Verified reviewexcellent

Had a great time. Excellent accomodaions. We were with another couple - Mike and Joanne Powers and were treated great! Of course we went on the shark cage diving excursion, which was not scary but the water was very cold - 48 degrees F. The staff and owners are sooooo nice and very helpful. We would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone that is interested in a great place, excellent place and wonderful hosts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My partner Map and I have been to many continents, visiting wonderful places like Livingston Montana, Kaikoura New Zealand and Arniston South Africa. To be honest, we've never been to a place like Cliff Lodge, De Kelders, for two reasons. Warm hospitality and excellent service in combination with a breath taking lodge. Gideon, Jill, Nico and the crew, hopefully it won't be long before Map and I are back!
