Garden Route Tours, The Overberg Inland Route over The Helderberg Mountains

Witsand is found at the mouth of the Breede River and is a location with a difference on the Garden Route. Even though it's not a popular stop during Garden Route Tours, the Overberg inland route takes us very close to this town. Specialised or private tours can request a stop at Witsand. The Breede River is the biggest river estuary in South Africa and is a very popular fishing location.

Villiersdorp, also known as the The Pearl of the Overberg is a peaceful farming community surrounded by fruit and wine farms. The town forms part of the apple and fruit capital of South Africa. The Overberg inland route takes us past a few of these farming towns as we explore the area during our Garden Route tours.

Stellenbosch is a well known name in South Africa due to its wine production. Taking the Overberg inland route during Garden Route tours takes us very close to this town, and if time allows we might even stop for a view or tasting. The town was given the name of the first govenor of Cape Town, Simon van der Stel.

Franschhoek started in 1688 by the French Huguenots who fled France due to political and religious issues. They were welcomed in The Cape by the Dutch and were given land in this area. They were highly skilled in farming and wine production and they set the wine industry, as we know it today in motion. Franschhoek can be visited during daily wine tours or it can be included in Garden Route tours as we head inland through the Overberg on our way to the Garden Route.

About three hours drive from Cape Town lies a nature reserve found in the Overberg inland region. De Hoop Nature Reserve is more than 34 000 hectares and one of the biggest natural areas managed by Cape Nature. It is a popular spot for hiking, cycling, bird and whale watchers. The park can be entered from the towns of Swellendam or Bredasdorp. De Hoop is a specialized, requested stop and can only be included on private or customized Garden Route Tours.
