The Overberg is a facinating area at the southernmost tip of Africa. This celebrates the region, it's landscapes, flora, fauna and peoples. The visual content on my pinboards is owned and copyrighted by its creators and owners. I try as much as possible to acknowledge sources.

Overberg Wheat fields

Wheat as far as the eye can see. Once this was renosterveld one of the richest plant bulbs fields in the world. Natural vegetation remains in only a few isolated patches few bigger than 100 acres.

Renosterveld forms part of the smallest and richest plant kingdom on Earth: the Cape Floristic Kingdom. It's an exceptionally rich, but poorly known habitat in SOUTH AFRICA. Renosterveld is most renowned for its bulb diversity (the highest in the world) and its extraordinary displays of spring flowers. It holds an abundance of rare and threatened plants, is a refuge and feeding area for several threatened birds as well as several endemic small mammals, reptiles and insects.
