Have some fun in Mossel Bay

Posted by Zimasa Katamzi on 31 March 2021

This harbour town situated on the Garden Route in South Africa’s Western Cape province is not only known for its pristine blue flag beaches and rich history, but is also a great adventure-packed location to tick off that bucket list. Mossel Bay has a bit of everything for everyone. Adrenalin junkies have shark caging diving, quad biking, sand-boarding and many more, while gentler folks can enjoy their time sightseeing.
