Instead of following the crowd decide to take the road less travelled to the outskirts of the countryside. Discover the almost forgotten wide open spaces and lose yourself in the serenity of it all. Escape to a farm stay in Gansbaai and enjoy a life of privacy and fresh air.
Escaping to the countryside doesn’t always mean getting covered in mud, unless you book yourself a facial of course. Secluded retreats on a number of farms in the midst of Gansbaai help you to unwind and relax. Enriching outdoor activities help you to rediscover adventure. Endless hectares of indigenous fynbos to navigate and the vastness of the starry night sky might just help you discover a thing or two about yourself.
Get back to your roots and opt for living and discovering the lesser know corners of this natural wonderland. Become a part of the family on a fully functional livestock farm and enjoy getting your hands dirty again. Befriend the happy-go-lucky farm critters; spend time watching the cows graze their way across the fields as the day draws to a close.
Sometimes self-discovery shouldn’t be explored alone, so best bring a loved one or friend along. Together enjoy the countless fruits of nature and share long walks and chats in the endless maze of footpaths and trails mapping the countryside. Alternatively stay in and snuggle up to the fireplace, either way you never know what you might find.
Children are also most welcome, whether on family holiday or school field trips. Educational walks encourage young explorers to become a part of the community and take part in conservation. Luckily, being a little bit out there, most of the Gansbaai farm stays also welcome pets with open arms and open spaces. This ensures even four-legged family members can join in on the rustic getaway.
Trendy nature lovers will be happy to know that elegance is no longer only reserved for city slickers and their sky scraping hotels. Luxury can also be found between the trees in a variety ofspacious, comfy cottages nestled in the fynbos vegetation or classy guesthouses closer to the coast.
The accommodation in Gansbaai being just as accessible as its diverse nature ensures you won’t miss a minute of the excitement in town. A short but scenic drive will put you right back in civilisation. Remote but still equipped with all the necessary commodities our selection of Farm Stays offer the best way to break away from it all.
