THINGS TO DO AROUND VILLA THE CHERRY
WHALE WATCHING & SHARK CAGE DIVING
To see the whales with their babies, or the great white shark, Gansbaai is the place to be! There are several operators who offer cage diving from a boat, for encounters with the great white shark. As the trip is dependent upon good weather conditions, it is advisable to stay in the area for a couple of days. When you stay in Villa The Cherry, the operator will phone you in the morning to tell you when the trip is “one”.
Gansbaai is the best location on earth to see whales and great white sharks.
Whales with their babies can be seen daily directly and very close in front of the villa during the “whale season” from June until January. All year long, you can enjoy the rich aqua fauna, hundreds of bird species, thousands of fynbos species, ancient Khoisan cave, etc. All these impressive natural delights are to be discovered directly around the villa.
