An Inside Look into Stanford’s Many Attractions

Xplorio Headquarters

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.

Join us as we take a closer look at some of the wonderful activities that Stanford Village has to offer:

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

A visit to the riverside village will fill your senses with the sights and sounds of over 300 endemic bird species that call this little patch of unique flora their home. And what better way to experience this than taking a lazy river cruise to admire the untouched beauty and spot the myriad of different birds that have made the river banks their home. It attracts so many different species of birds that Stanford has become renowned as a birdwatching hotspot.

4x4 Beach Trips

Take to the rugged landscapes surrounding Stanford and discover where fields of flowering fynbos give way to sandy dunes of the beaches of Die Plaat. The Stanford 4x4 trails are definitely geared for those looking to get their blood pumping and explore the diverse terrain.
