On the far side of Gansbaai you’ll find a neighbourhood caught between the magnificent Atlantic Ocean and the Duyenefontein Mountains. You won’t be able to get enough of the stunning sights and sounds in the area, so take a load off and stay in one of our comfortable accommodations in Franskraal.
Franskraal is a bit out of sight, but allows you to really indulge in the wonders of nature. Secluded lodgings on farms and houses on the edge of the water helps you to connect with the natural flow of life again. Each accommodation in Franskraal is a reclusive haven with its own unique enhancements.
The original outdoor choice is always camping. The grounds here are spacious and have entertainment for the whole family, including mini-golf and a swimming pool. While having a ‘braai’ underneath the trees, you can hear the cry of the Fish Eagle and spot Dyer Island in the distance. Do it South African style!
In the lush fynbos of the valleys you will find cosy cottages tucked away in the vegetation. This rustic getaway will let you fill your lungs with fresh country air and allow you to gaze at the stars at night. Relish in the peace and quiet of the great outdoors after a long day of exploring. The privately owned establishments serve as the perfect place to relax and unwind. With only the rolling hills, blue sky and deep Blue Ocean to distract you, you won’t ever want to leave.
Franskraal also holds the option of seaside bed and breakfasts of the highest quality. Right on the waterfront it provides uninterrupted sea views and is only a short walk away from the beach. On the way to the beach, you will find the Strandveld Museum. It holds photos and artefacts of the area and also a collection of salvaged goods from the HMS Birkenhead.
Situated on the “other side” of Gansbaai, Franskraal puts you halfway on your way to the most southern tip of Africa. A must see and along the way you can do some wine tasting or drop into one of the small towns to get a taste of some local culture.
The slightly off the beaten track Franskraal offers picturesque sights and wide open spaces. All accommodation has friendly service and attentive hosts even if you decide to opt for the self-catering option. Come and relish your holiday time in one of the few forgotten corners of the world.Read Less
