The Cape Overberg region is a stunning contradiction of rugged mountain ranges and spectacular coastal luxury, culminating in a truly stunning location. Located less than 3 hours from Cape Town, Overberg has long been the go-to holiday destination for locals and travellers from afar who want to experience incomparable natural beauty and easy living.
Stretching from the Hottentots-Holland Mountains in the west to Swellendam in the east, the Riviersonderend Mountains in the north, and the coastline to the south, the Overberg region is a playground for outdoor spirits. While consisting of 25 towns in total, the areas of Hermanus, Onrus and Gansbaai are by far the most popular - especially during the whale season between June and January when visitors flock to the cliff paths to watch these playful creatures make their way past the coast.
Another popular activity in the area is wine tasting. With a long list of top-quality vineyards, a visit to this charming region would not be complete without visiting at least one of the wine farms. Even if you’re not big on wine, each vineyard offers a beautiful environment where you can relax in nature while enjoying a delicious fuss-free meal.
Adrenaline junkies will love getting up close and personal with Great White Sharks while shark cage diving in Gansbaai or getting a bird's-eye view with the Cape Canopy tour conducted in the Hottentots-Holland Nature Reserve. If you prefer to stay close to dry ground, Overberg has an abundance of excellent walking, hiking and mountain biking trails perfect for all fitness levels.
Whether suntanning on glorious beaches, exploring the numerous top-quality restaurants, bars, boutiques and art galleries or getting your fill of nature, this stunning region is made for good times.
