The Great White House, Kleinbaai, Western Cape, South Africa

This picturesque fishing village outside Gansbaai, lies roughly 300km south east of Cape Town at the beginning of the Cape's Garden Route. The area is famous for its resident population of great white sharks and is also home to southern right whales, African penguins and Cape fur seals.

This locality will provide attendees with an isolated, quiet environment in which meals, accommodation and scientific needs can all be accommodated under one organisational umbrella, whilst keeping costs to a minimum.

Kleinbaai is approximately 3 hours drive from the Cape Town city centre and International Airport. Shuttle services from Cape Town to Kleinbaai will be available at extra cost to those without their own transport. We encourage the Cape Town locals to provide and share transport if at all possible.
