As you drive the short distance of 7km out of Gansbaai through a fynbos wonderland, you can turn into Uilenkraalsmond holiday resort for a perfectly chilled vacation. Situated on the doorstep of the ocean with the mountains as a backdrop, Uilenkraalsmond is a remote location ideal for families.
The epic scenery and copious amounts of activities means that anyone from babies to grandpas can relish in some fun. For those that like the challenge of pulling a fish from the waters this is a fishing haven! During the months of July to December it is whale season and a walk onto the beach showcases the tens of Southern Right Whales playing close to the coastline. There is also hiking, quad biking, kayaking, shark cage diving, and a bunch of friendly pubs in town.
When you enter this caravan park there is a putt-putt course, super tube and trampoline for the kids to amuse their over-active bodies. The drive through the large resort will be bustling during popular holiday seasons as families flock to this spot for cheap accommodation and an optimal place right by the beach. A drive through the resort and you will pass the many chalets, caravans and tents as the smell of boerewors washes over the resort from family braais. Families can come and expect to leave their worries at the gate as everyone kicks off their shoes and runs down to the beach for a fun-filled adventure.
There is a variety of accommodation to suit everyone in Uilenkraalsmond. One of the options is to rent a full-equipped self-catering chalet for the family at a very reasonable price. This modest accommodation is just what you need and is perfect for those that like to keep it simple without roughing it too much. For those that love the practicality and mobility of a caravan, feel free to bring your home on wheels closer to the sounds of the ocean. If you would rather completely escape routine and bunk with nature then bring a tent. As you trade the urban comforts for a few nights on the ground and the sky as your roof you will be happy to have all the necessary facilities and be in a prime spot.
Uilenkraalsmond is situated at the mouth of the Uilenkraals River, which is a serene lagoon that is perfect for swimming and any other water activities. It is also a popular ground for estuary birds such as waders and gulls. On the other side of the resort guests can stroll out the gates onto white sandy beaches that go on for miles! There is ample to explore amongst these sand dunes and the crisp waters are great to splash in. Gansbaai has other beaches that can cater for any type of beach experience you might be looking for.
No matter the different types and sizes of families that come, everyone is here for one reason, and that is to have an amazing holiday. Gansbaai and the experience waiting in Uilenkraalsmond will not disappoint.
