If you're a resident or even an annual visitor to Gansbaai, you’ve probably noticed a tortoise or two crossing the road...
Established as a popular rest-stop along the N2, the small town of Riviersonderend offers up a variety of home-made goodness along with so much more. The beautiful surrounding landscapes, entrepreneurial community and fun outdoor activities will have you taking another look. The small group of guest houses and retreat available allows for a great stay and serves as gateway to exploring the attractions at the foot of the Riviersonderend Mountains.
The collection of local shops and eateries hold the delicious and curious creations of the locals and those who provide their goods to the town. Also home to a list of challenging hiking trails, a 9-hole golf course and host to one of South Africa’s top events, the town is also a perfect spot to station yourself for venturing out and discovering the neighbouring towns.
