Located in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, the Overberg comes alive with colour and excitement during the months leading up to the (South African) winter months. Now is the time that the rolling hills of fynbos flowers, birds arrive to feed on the seeds and sweet nectar of said fynbos and of course, the Southern Right Whales return to the nearby Walker Bay.

Locating yourself in the town of Botrivier at the foot of the Houw Hoek Pass gives you great access to all the surrounding attractions while still enjoying the peace and quiet of Overberg countryside.  So, here’s a list of how to have a wonderful winter break in Botrivier:

Book your stay

Botrivier offers a surprising variety of great accommodations, from cosy cottages to fully equipped self-caterings. Choose to stay on a beautiful working farm like Goedvertrouw Wine Estate, a boutique lodge overlooking Walker Bay like Endless Vineyards Boutique Lodge or the fully equipped Nuwejaars B&B. The lodgings in this little town offer hospitality and comfort in a big way.

Try the local cuisine

If there’s one thing you can be sure of it’s that the folks of the Overberg have a zest for life and it truly shows in their hearty cooking. Head out to any of the local restaurants and be sure to take your appetite along. From light lunches at rustic farm stalls to divine wine tastings to great spots to grab a burger, the eateries in Botrivier has you and your tummy covered.

Be adventurous

Situated in such a beautiful region, you’d be forgiven if you get itchy feet in Botrivier. That’s where the town’s exciting outdoor activities can help you out. The surrounding landscapes and natural resources offer a variety of activities that everyone can enjoy. From hiking and mountain biking to bird watching and fishing to taking on the 4x4 and quad bike trails, Botrivier owns up to its name as Gateway to Adventure.

Get out there and explore

One of the wonderful things about the Overberg region is that the towns are all quite near to each other, yet each holds their own unique attractions. Thus staying in Botrivier gives you quick access to its neighbouring towns. From whale watching in Hermanus and wine tasting in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley to nature reserves and social markets in Greyton to canopy zipline tours and festivals in Grabouw, there is much to experience and explore.

These are but some of the attractions that the town has to offer. Book your winter break in Botrivier to discover the rest!
