If you're a resident or even an annual visitor to Gansbaai, you’ve probably noticed a tortoise or two crossing the road...
The peaceful village of Greyton is a popular getaway for those who wish to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and return to a time of easy living. With streets lined with beautiful old oak trees and friendly folk travelling about town with vintage bicycles, this little hamlet makes for a great weekend break. And for a special weekend in August, Greyton puts on a creative show to boot!
