Educates the community to live holistically

Gansbaai Tourism wants Gansbaai and the natural surroundings to remain well-kept for future generations to enjoy, and in doing so proudly practise responsible tourism. This means the constant challenge to educate locals and visitors against using single-use plastic is on the agenda as well as continually organizing eco-initiatives such as beach and hiking trail clean-ups.

To continue marketing Gansbaai effectively means a continual need for well-trained staff, technical equipment, marketing material and office stationery. Funds for transport and accommodation are also needed for the Gansbaai Tourism team to represent Gansbaai at nationally and internationally recognised tourism expos and seminars that are held out of town. These running costs rely greatly on membership.
