Geocaching in Gordons Bay and Cape Town

Published in Blog

We have lots of caches in Gordons Bay and Cape Town!

For who has never heard of this modern treasure hunting, Geocaching is cool! People hide the caches (boxes) and then post GPS coordinates of their location on www.geocaching.com. Now the fun can start!

There are over ten different types of caches, some of which have small items that people can take and replace with new objects, but at the very least the caches will have a logbook for you to sign. We have plenty of geocaching spots in the area around Gordons Bay but ofcourse also around Cape Town.
