Overberg - Majestic Mountains and Hospitable Towns

Located to the east of the bustling city of Cape Town, beyond the majestic Hottentots-Holland Mountains, the Overberg region has long been considered to be the breadbasket of the Cape, and when traveling through wheat fields stretching as far as the eye can see, it soon becomes clear why this is so. But there is much more to the Overberg than its flourishing farming community, and visitors to the area will find that tourism is a high priority, with all manner of activities just waiting to be enjoyed.

Stretching from the Hottentots-Holland Mountains in the West to the Breede River in the East, and from the Riviersonderend Mountains in the North to the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans at Cape Agulhas in the south, the Overberg is a region of contrasts, with undulating wheat and canola fields, orchards, forests, rugged mountains, unique fynbos and stunning coastal vistas offering whale-spotting opportunities.

The UNESCO recognized Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, which contains a large diversity of endemic flowering plants, lies within the boundaries of the Overberg and the wheat fields provide the perfect habitat for the Blue Crane – South Africa’s national bird. There are more than thirty towns and villages in the region, each renowned for its hospitality and waiting to welcome you to this most appealing region of South Africa.
