Week 5 of 2014 - Gansbaai News, Specials & Events

NEWS: Adventure Ahead

Keeping our eyes and ears firmly to the Tweet-o-sphere we join in on the awe-inspiring and adrenalin-pumping trends. This week it is all about the Outdoor Adventures of the Overberg. The topic of this week’s #discoverOverberg chat on Twitter is awakening a child-like excitement within us as we count down the hours.

This week we invite you to share your favourite outdoor experience and also what still lies patiently in wait on your Overberg bucketlist. From spending a relaxing day at one of our sun-kissed beaches to riding off into the sunset on horseback to taking a scenic flight over the land- and seascapes. Here in the Overberg we also have the privilege of having our majestic Marine Big 5 to observe and enjoy whether by boat, sky or simply from the cliffs of our coastline. 

For those looking to get the heartbeat racing, the land is marked with numerous hiking and walking trails while heading to the open waters allows for great deep-sea fishing, whale watching and Shark Cage Diving. The Overberg truly holds a spectacular array of things to do and see in settings caught between land and sea. 

So, why not join us and share your best outdoor adventure in the Overberg.
