Generally small towns rank dismally on TripAdvisor. However Gansbaai, and specifically De Kelders, is the exception to this rule. In the 2013 Trip Advisor Travellers’ Awards, 3 of the 25 top B&B’s in South Africa were in De Kelders!
With over 46 million monthly users globally, there is no doubt that TripAdvisor is the big story in tourism marketing. Generally small towns rank dismally with little exposure on TripAdvisor. However Gansbaai, and specifically De Kelders, is the exception to this rule.

In the 2013 Trip Advisor Travellers’ Awards, 3 of the 25 top B&B’s in South Africa were in De Kelders! How wonderful for this little village to have such high quality establishments, and such great recognition. The three award winners are Cliff Lodge (at no. 3), Crayfish Lodge (at no. 6) and De Kelders Private House (at no. 19). Cliff Lodge was also named as no. 22 in the Top 25 B&B’s in the world!

Twenty one of the twenty five award winners in South Africa are found in the Western Cape, which is testament to the very high standard of accommodation and service that is at the heart of our tourism industry in this province.
Unlike other awards, TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice winners are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions collected during the year from travellers around the world. One thing is for sure – TripAdvisor users love South Africa, and De Kelders in particular!
