Overberg literally means 'over the mountain', is Africa's most southerly region. It extends from mountain foothills through verdant wheatfields and vineyards to the Indian ocean coastline.

It stretches from Port St. Johns in the north to Kei Mouth in the south. This stretch of coast offers some of the best angling, hiking, and diving and of course the magnificent casinos.
