The Overberg region in the Western Cape is full of natural disparity and spectacular scenery. It offers rugged mountain ranges, kilometres of fynbos, rolling wheat and canola fields, as well as extravagant coastal views.

The Overberg is a region where everything from the soil, to the mountain ranges, the sea and locals tell a story. The area stretches along the coast and boasts beautiful sandy beaches, green mountaintop ranges and fascinating geological formations, as well as an abundance of bird species and fynbos.
