Updated Week 5 of 2014 - Gansbaai News, Specials & Events

NEWS: Adventure Abound

Once again the weekly #discoverOverberg chat on Twitter was a huge success and even more impressive is that this was only its third week running. This week’s topic of Outdoor Adventures really got the adrenalin pumping and everyone keen to run out of the office and soak up some sunshine in the great outdoors.

The expanding group of contributors included Tweeps from across the country and the chat trended again throughout the Tweet-o-sphere. This week we also had the privilege of having Cape Town commercial, event, sports and wedding photographer, Jon Meinking ( @ishotimagesza ) co-host with us. 

The tweets swarmed in about all the lovely, yet adventurous outdoor activities there is to take part in in the Overberg. Beautiful images of people lounging on the pristine beacheskayaking along flowing rivers and horse riding along the beach popped up everywhere. Other favourites included doing wine tasting on one of the many wine farms in the area, tree top canopy tours and taking on some of the various hiking trails that snake through the landscapes.

For all near and far, the next question was the one we were all waiting for: What’s on your 2014 Outdoor Overberg Adventure wishlist? Not surprisingly our very own Marine Big 5 featured quite a bit. Whether it simply be viewing the various marine species from land, sea or air or getting up close and personal with a Great White Shark, our ocean adventures are definitely sought after. 

One thing that reigned true throughout the chat was that the Overberg, is truly an outdoor adventure haven for young and old. Let’s keep the spirit going and get out there this weekend and get our adventure on!
