CONNECT WITH US

DROID HQ is situated in the beautiful coastal village of Gansbaai, not far from the southernmost tip of Africa.

While Gansbaai, more famous for its sharks and whales, might not be the first place you’d expect to find a cutting-edge digital agency, the beauty of working online is that we can literally be anywhere and work with anyone. At the same time, we all share a passion for the Overberg and the pristine natural surroundings that benefit our lifestyles. We love surfing and going to the beach, hiking in the fynbos, having sundowners on the rocks and the complete absence of traffic jams. The next time you’re in the area, give us a shout. We’d love to share a few local secrets with you.
