Gansbaai, WEstern Cape, South Africa
Location: Western Cape, South Africa
Flower Valley Farm is situated near
the small town of Gansbaai.
Gansbaai is a quaint town which was found in the early 1880’s. Originally, Gansbaai was inhabited by fishermen, who lived off the ocean to feed themselves and their families.
The fishermen decided on the name “Gansbaai” after they saw colonies of Egyptian geese gather at the freshwater fountain which is next to the harbour.
Gansbaai has always revolved around the fishing industry. But more recently, the town and surrounding area (including Flower Valley Farm) has seen impressive growth in the tourism industry.
But aside from the coastal and marine biodiversity, Gansbaai and surrounds is also being seen as a fynbos destination. The fynbos in this Walker Bay region is unique, often threatened and very beautiful.
That’s why destinations such as Flower Valley Farm invite visitors to come witness this special veld, and the animals that live in it.
