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.

About House Boats
Guests truly make their accommodation and integral part of their holiday when they opt to stay in a houseboat. There is a wide variety of options when it comes to Houseboating. For guests with seafaring experience, and a skippers licence, there is the opportunity to commandeer your own boathouse, and enjoy the flexibility and freedom it offers. These smaller boathouses can sleep up-to five people and offer basic amenities for self-catering. For guests wanting or willing to let someone else do the boating there are both economy and luxury houseboating options to choose from. Economy is ideal for larger groups, and guest who want a more hands-on approach to their holiday. Guests preferring smaller groups, or wanting to simply take in the experience, luxury is the way to go.
