Overberg & Klein Karoo

South Africa

DESTINATIONS > Africa > South Africa > Overberg & Klein Karoo

A semi-desert region which stretches from the Cape Winelands on its western end to the Garden Route at its eastern extreme, the Overberg & Klein Karoo is one of the least-explored parts of South Africa but well worth a few days visit. Many travellers will simply pass through on self-drive trips, possibly stopping in the principal towns of Swellendam or Oudtshoorn for a night to break the journey.

These towns are lovely to explore in its own right, with Swellendam being home to some beautiful Cape Dutch buildings and offers easy access to the De Hoop Nature Reserve, whilst Oudtshoorn is renowned for its ostrich farms and the beautiful Cango Caves, as well as offering meerkat interactions.

Further north there are a number of grape growing regions and the town of Calitzdorp is very well known for the excellent port producers, whilst tiny Robertson boasts some excellent restaurants and foodie retreats in the surrounding countryside.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!
