Franskraal

Franskraal, a modest seaside village bordering the White Shark mecca of South Africa, Franskraal is home to several artists and skilled craftsmen and women who hone their skills in this unassuming town with its endless pristine sand beach and prime fishing spots.

A birders paradise, Franskraal's long white sandy beach crosses the outlet of the Uilkraals estuary which will keep avid birders happy for hours.

For the intrepid hiker there's the Groot Melkhoutbos Trail which is open to the public with interesting birds and plants to spot along this beautiful hike. On the edge of the coastline of Franskraal is the historical Strandveld Museum with the largest collection of relics of the HMT Birkenhead which was wrecked at Danger Point in 1852.

The Strandveld Museum

The quaint Strandveld Museum houses the largest collection of relics of the HMT Birkenhead which was wrecked at Danger Point in 1852 amongst several other historical collections and artefacts.

The owners of this stunning little coastal gem are local historians Jan and SD Fourie who lovingly dedicate their time and knowledge to the upkeep of this significant attraction. This formidable husband and wife team will amuse and enthrall visitors with stories of the area.

SD is a qualified National Tour Guide and is renowned for her extensive knowledge of the area. She arranges several tours which are booked up well in advance; one of which is the legendary "Spook Toer" (Ghost Tour).

Jan, a retired teacher and aficionado on matters "Strandveld" and history thereof, will entertain and impart all his knowledge as only he knows how. Concertina and mouth organ always close by!
