Hermanus & the Overberg

Within driving distance of one of South Africa’s busiest cities, lies a region of contrasts and wonder. Driving southeast on the N2 from Cape Town you climb Sir Lowry’s Pass, a circuitous road that winds high above the towns of Somerset West & Gordon’s Bay offering fabulous views of the False Bay coastline, which is the gateway to the Overberg region.

Why visit Hermanus & the Overberg ?

The Overberg has rugged mountain ranges, fynbos, rolling wheat fields and splendid coastal vistas taking you on a journey through valleys with picturesque vineyards, orchards and beautiful landscapes of green, gold and brown. The region caters for all tastes with diverse activities on offer such as golfing, horse riding, wine tasting, whale watching (from June to November) and even shark cage diving for the more adventurous soul.
