Xplorio Regions

Welcome to the Overberg. 

A mere 2 hour drive from Cape Town, whether you choose the scenic Clarence Drive or climbing Sir Lowry’s Pass. Be welcomed by the small towns and villages that stretch along the south western coast of South Africa all the way to the Tip of Africa and back to where the Overberg meets the Klein Karoo.

Made up of 25 towns varying in sizes, from the small hamlets of Elim and Kassiesbaai to the quaint villages of Stanford and Greyton to the larger towns of Hermanus and Bredasdorp, the Overberg is a diverse region indeed. The region also includes various smaller regions like the Cape Whale Coast, Cape Agulhas, Cape Country Meander and the greater Swellendam area. Covering landscapes that stretch from abundant ocean to lush forests and beyond, the Overberg holds a large number of nature reserves, historical landmarks and national monuments not to be missed on your visit to the beautiful area. 

The Overberg is well-known for its natural beauty, with city-dwellers venturing out here to explore and enjoy the many gems that the region holds. Falling within the endemic Cape Floral Kingdom, it is no wonder that the region is home to a smorgasbord of animal and plant species alike, often unique to the area and endangered. The prolific ocean life includes the Marine Big 5 and the abundant presence of one of the members has led to one of the coastal Overberg towns officially being the Great White Capital of the World. The area with its unique vegetation is also home to hundreds of endemic bird species including the endangered Black Oystercatcher, Eagles, Kingfishers and the national bird, the Blue Crane.

The rugged, seemingly untouched natural landscapes also give way to a variety of exciting outdoor activities. From soaring up high between mountains to diving into the deep blue to come face to face with the ocean’s best, the Overberg can almost be known as the adventure capital of the country. The region is also home to some of South Africa’s best hiking and mountain biking trails which also makes it a popular destination for outdoor events. Not only focused on athletics, the region is also quite fond of its arts and culture and hosts some of the biggest music and wine festival in the country.

With an endless list of things to see and do in a stunning setting and friendly faces happy to share inside info, what’s not to love about the Overberg! We look forward to welcoming you soon.
