Overberg at a glance


Yes, it does exist! This enchanting place where mysterious giants visit the shoreline, fynbos fairies frolic against majestic mountain slopes and a human heart can soar to the stars. Just follow your dream along the R44 from Cape Town and within an hour you will reach the magical coastal towns of Rooi Els, Pringle, Bay, Betty’s Bay and Kleinmond, located in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reservea UNESCO World Heritage site.


Whale spotting: Enjoy wonderful whale watching opportunities from June to December when Southern Right and Humpback whales migrate to these coastal waters to calf and nurse their young.

Penguins:  The Jackass Penguin Colony at Stony Point, Betty’s Bay, is one of three unique breeding colonies on the African mainland.  

Famous Fynbos:  This whole area is truly a garden for all seasons, renowned for the splendor of its floral kingdom. You will never cease to marvel at the wonder of the 1600 exquisite fynbos species that grace this region. One of the best places to do just that is to visit the well known Harold Porter Botanical Garden in Betty’s Bay, one of nine botanical gardens in South Africa.

Star gazing:  The night skies are extremely spectacular, due to the fact that there are no street lights in some of these towns.


Hiking, cycling, mountain biking, horse riding, angling, swimming, canoeing, deep sea fishing, diving, surfing, kite surfing, sand boarding ... or just relaxing in the sun!  Long white beaches, clean amber coloured rivers, fresh water lakes, lagoon at Kleinmond, safe tidal pools for children, walking trails, breathtaking surroundings and fragrant air makes this area a paradise for outdoor activities. There are golf courses at Kleinmond and Arabella.

SHOPPING:  Apart from the normal selection of shops and supermarkets, various gift shops, art galleries and potteries provide an exciting shopping experience.
