South Africa’s Overberg region lies east of Cape Town and west of the Garden Route. A place of mountains, rivers and oceans, it includes the Elgin Valley and the towns of Hermanus, Caledon, Greyton, Gansbaai, Bredasdorp, Grabouw, Swellendam, Stanford, Kleinmond and Cape Agulhas, which is the southernmost point of Africa. It’s a landscape of yellow canola fields, South Africa’s national bird the blue crane, gentle hills and seascapes.
