THE OVERBERG - South Africa's ‘Southern Tip’ and her surrounds are revealed .... towns, history, tours, routes, local attractions, eateries, accommodation, and much more ….

The Overberg opens its doors to all who venture over-the-mountains from Cape Town. From Grabouw in the west to Heidelberg in the east this untouched haven of mountains, meandering rivers and spectacular ocean views is a tranquil jewel at the southern part of South Africa. Cape Agulhas, the most southern point of Africa, marks the must-see stopping off point at the tip and Barrydale in the north define the loose boundaries that offer such a rich variety of destinations and experiences.

The entire region is dotted with towns and villages that play host to friendly local residents and establishments. A tangible air of tranquility greets one as the vista opens to the traveller on crossing the Hottentots-Holland Mountains above Somerset West.

Explore the wealth of history contained throughout the region … or take in the diverse flora and fauna that makes this area the fynbos wonder of the world … browse the galleries hosting artworks of the many gifted artists residing in this area … enjoy leisurely meals and hospitality of the myriad of restaurants, bistros and coffee shops geared up to provide you with a pleasant and memorable taste experience … relax at one of the incomparably beautiful beaches or coves bordering the Overberg … saunter and sample your way through the many different markets, festivals and fairs that keep the annual calendar full and interesting … and the list of things to see and do goes on, and on …
