Rolling wheatfields, local farm stalls and quaint little villages of all sorts characterizes the Overberg region. Charming B&B's and small farm cottages offer guests true Cape style hospitality capped with excellent traditional food - all only short drive along the N2 from Cape Town. Amongst the countless popular "get away from it all" towns and villages, the Overberg is also home to Hermanus, the infamous little fishing village popular for its whale watching from the cliff tops. This region also encompasses Cape Agulhas - the wild and beautiful southern most tip of Africa, from which travelers watch the two oceans meet.

Time in the Overberg is well spent, whether you are a sports buff or simply a meandering vacationer enjoying the scenic drives.


This drier and more rugged region holds secrets which capture any wary traveler. The West Coast embraces vast beaches for the sun-seekers, eco-tourism galore for the nature devotee and just about everything for the sports enthusiast. Prime hiking and bird watching territory, Khoisan rock art, unusual rock formations, constant whale watching opportunities and the annual flower shows of all varieties abound for everyone. This area is also recognized for its extraordinary seafood harvest, including crayfish - all freshly prepared in the numerous open-air restaurants and bars dotted along the coast line.

The Central Karoo has proven to be a place of great extremes which confound in distinction. The semi-desert interior comprises exciting bundles of interspersed villages and wide open spaces, hazy indigo dawns followed by crimson coloured sunsets, old world architecture, parched plains and blossoming valleys, sweltering summers and harsh winters…

We think Neil Mostert describes it best: It is a place of the purest starlight and the widest dawns, aromatic, bittersweet in their nostalgic brevity, for all of it is swiftly consumed by the rising sun.
