EMBRACE THE SOULFUL SURROUNDS
Embrace the soulful surrounds, exquisite natural beauty and hearty hospitality of the Cape Overberg as you meander through rolling canola- and fynbos-clad peaks, past quiet coves and charming seaside villages indulging in the delicious flavours of local cuisine and wines.
Aptly named, Cape Agulhas is the final resting place of over 130 wrecks that met their end in the agulhas (needles in Portuguese) that fringe the southern-most tip of the African continent, and the true meeting place of the Atlantic and Indian oceans.
Follow the age-old route taken by the gentle marine giants that skirt the Cape Whale Coast in season, from the hamlet of Rooi-Els to Quoin Point in the east, and through the seaside villages of Hermanus, Kleinmond and Gansbaai.
Enjoy a leisurely meander along the scenic Clarence Drive – a spectacular stretch of coastline that hugs False Bay, from the hamlet of Rooi-Els to Gordons Bay. Twisting and turning at least 77 times over 21km, you’ll be guaranteed spellbinding coastal views.
Come up close to the quirky African Penguins that find sanctuary at Stony Point Nature Reserve in Betty’s Bay, home to one of the largest successful breeding colonies of this penguin species worldwide. See them first-hand in their natural habitat, going about their daily activities.
Admire the beauty of the Cape region’s unique coastal fynbos, from South Africa’s national flower – the King Protea – to species of Ericas, Disas and even Orchids that are lovingly tended on heathlands and dunes amidst amber pools and waterfalls – a veritable natural wonderland.
Sample the unique vintages and foodie flavours of the Overberg region, set against the mesmerising backdrop of rugged mountains, rolling vineyards and the Atlantic coastline. From the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley to the orchard-clad hills of Elgin, there’s a gourmet extravaganza to meet every taste.
Bleached white sands against a turquoise blue sea – the rugged beauty of De Hoop is exquisite and enchanting and provides a beautiful backdrop for avid bird and whale watchers to relax and explore its pristine landscape on foot, or by bike.
Explore the exquisite natural beauty of the Cape Overberg, departing your hotel en route to Cape Agulhas, the southern-most point of the African continent where the Indian and the Atlantic Oceans meet. You’ll see the quaint villages of Napier, Struisbaai and Pearly Beach, visit the whale hotspot of Hermanus and say hello to the Stony Point penguins at Betty’s Bay before meandering along the stunning Clarence Drive back to Cape Town.
