Hermanus & The Overberg


The Overberg is situated in the Western Cape. It is an untouched haven of mountains, ocean, rivers and spectacular nature making it a perfect holiday destination. The Overberg is an expanse of land that lies on the Southern most tip of Africa. It stretches from the Hottentots-Holland Mountains in the west to Swellendam in the east, and from the Riviersonderend Mountains in the north, to the Atlantic & Indian Oceans in the south.

Route 62 is a popular route that meanders between Cape Town and Oudtshoorn, the Garden Route and Port Elizabeth, offering the shorter, scenic alternative to the N2 highway. Amongst many other attractions, the area is well known for its whale watching – whether by land or by sea.

Hermanus has grown from a rustic fishermen's village to one of the world's best land-based whale watching destinations. In places, whales can be viewed from as close as 30 metres from the cliff paths.
