Whale Watching
The Overberg is renowned to offer some of the best land- and boat-based whale watching in the world. Each year, Southern Right, Humpback and Bryde's whales migrate into our coastal waters to calve and nurse their young. The animals, mere meters from the shore, provide unsurpassed whale watching opportunities between June and November.

Explore the Overberg's Floral Wonders
The Overberg is blessed with remarkable floral variety. Most of the region is richly endowed with fynbos, characterized by proteas, ericas and the russet restios or reeds that carpet the damp lowlands. The best flower displays usually occur from August to mid-October. Weather patterns, particularly hot berg winds, determine the duration of the flower season.
