More info about Overberg
The Overberg region in the Western Cape of South Africa begins after cresting the Hollands-Hottentot Mountains in the west and extends along the southern coast to reach the Riversdale area in the east. It’s a vast area consisting of pristine fynbos, wheat fields, livestock farms, apple orchards and spectacular coastline flanked by the Langeberg range of mountains and the warm Indian Ocean.
The word Overberg means Over the Mountain in Dutch and was for many years an obstacle in the path of Dutch expansion. Negotiating the Hollands-Hottentot Mountains was a major problem and it was only after the Sir Lowry’s Pass was established in 1830 that the area began to flourish.
Travellers to the Overberg are greeted to rambling green fields with a vast mountain range ever present in the north. Charming towns and interesting road stalls are dotted along the way and the coast is only a short detour off the main highway.
