Overberg

The Cape Overberg is known as The Whale Coast. Pristine beaches are ideal for swimming and surfing, but more than just sun, sea and sand, delightful culinary experiences accompanied by fine local wines await you. The Cape Overberg is situated in the southernmost region of South Africa and boasts endless kilometers of sandy white beaches. As part of the World Heritage Site Cape Floral Kingdom, the region is rich in fynbos, which in turn offers many walking and hiking experiences and turns it into a bird-watchers’ paradise.
 
Between July and November each year, Southern Right whales can be seen frolicking in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. For unparalleled viewing, visit the quaint seaside town of Hermanus. The singularly unique experience of witnessing the meeting of the mighty Atlantic and Indian Oceans at Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of the African continent, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The rich history in the Cape Overberg is depicted in museums, some of which occupy an entire village. Among others are the Fishing and Shipwreck museums and one of the only Apple Museums in the world that is situated in the Elgin Valley. Historic mission stations can be found in the towns of Elim and Genadendal. Pack a picnic basket and go hiking in the dune fields of De Hoop Nature Reserve, or journey on to coastal Gansbaai” that boasts the “Big 2” of the animal kingdom, namely the Southern Right whale and Great White shark.

Rural Villiersdorp is known as the Pearl of the Cape Overberg and boasts magnificent mountains, the Theewaterskloof Dam and award winning wine farms. At Malgas, drive along the banks of the Breede River to where the last remaining manually-operated ‘pont’ waits to ferry you across the mighty river. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all that there is to see and do in this scenically splendid Cape Overberg region.
