The Over­berg , a name trans­lated from Afrikaans, means ‘the other side of the moun­tain’. To early set­tlers in the Cape it rep­re­sented the land beyond the moun­tains of Africa, a region rich in resources as well as bound­less treasures.

The Over­berg is known as the bread bas­ket of the Cape, and the main farm­ing here is wheat and canola.

The Over­berg is bor­dered by by the Riv­ier­son­derend moun­tains in the north and Hot­ten­tots Hol­land moun­tains in the west, the Atlantic and Indian oceans in the south and the Breede River to the east.

This area com­prises mostly of gen­tly rolling hills, and here you will also find many breed­ing pairs of South Africas national bird, the Blue Crane.

Major towns include Cape Agul­has, the south­ern most tip of Africa, Swellen­dam , Bredas­dorp , Cale­don and Her­manus, famous for its whale watching.
