Outdoor Family Activities - Gansbaai Weekend Inspiration

For this weekend our mission is to get the whole family together and bask in the last embers of Summer’s warmth.

Gansbaai offers endless hours of quality family time with a wide variety of fun and exciting outdoor activities to choose from. Our fresh air and stunning landscapes are bound to have you refreshed and ready to go – so grab the relatives and get inspired!

Not only do we offer adventure for the adrenaline junkies, but fun for the whole family. The endless beaches of Uilenkraalmond and Die Plaat allow for leisurely strolls and picnics with even four-legged family members tagging along.

Beyond your doorstep lies the beautiful deep blue sea in wait to share its profound presence and ability to bring you back to your roots. The bountiful oceans around our village can be explored by kayaking along its coasts. Paddling along you can imagine what would have been the first view early explorers got of the area. Gliding along the rugged cliffs you can enjoy the sights and sounds of some of our local feathered friends busily going about their daily routine.

The numerous nature reserves in the area also offer a variety of hiking and walking trails through our unique fynbos and milkwood forests. The trails are of varying difficulty and terrains, thus you can choose a trail even granny can keep up with. For the spirited souls who want to follow in the footsteps of Icharus, we have uplifting scenic flights over the entire Overberg area.

This weekend is family weekend. Grab the kids, the in-laws, the pets and let’s get out there!
