The village of Stanford is well-known in the Overberg for its fully stocked with local produce Morning Markets, stunning scenery and the beautiful Klein River winding its way to the Lagoon. With so many exciting attractions and the town’s folk taking great pride in the preservation of the town’s history, it’s no wonder that Stanford was voted one of South Africa’s favourite villages.

Quad Biking

Satisfy your adventurous spirit by quad biking through the valleys of the Overberg. Kick your holiday into high gear with this exhilarating four-wheel drive that offers a fun experience for the whole family!

Kayaking Adventures

The Klein River offers a cool dip when the summer is at its peak and a place where families get together to swim and enjoy the water. Kayaking has become a favourite amongst locals and tourists as it is one of the more exciting ways to venture down the water and explore its wonders.

Horse Riding

There’s nothing quite like getting away from the city hustle and bustle and taking in the peace and quiet while breathing in the fresh country air. Now’s your chance to shake off the suit and saddle up for a horse riding adventure in Stanford.

Birdwatching & River Cruises

It attracts so many different species of birds that Stanford has become renowned as a birdwatching hotspot.
