The Overberg is one of the premier tourist regions of South Africa. Here the Cape Fold Mountains march eastward from Sir Lowry's Pass, a rugged backdrop to this old Cape landscape of farmsteads, gravel passes and unspoiled views. Delightful towns await you – historic Swellendam, McGregor and the wine farms of the Bonnievale valley, Hermanus and the fishing villages beyond. Missions, beaches littered with shipwreck sites, whales trolling the surf -- all kinds of wonders await you!

 If only we could clone Peter Slingsby and plant one of him in every province, we would know so much more about our country ... his Overberg map is chock-a-block with information. A classy touch is Slingsby’s smiley-face rating of byways on the main map, with a smile for enjoyable routes ... -- Jeanne van der Merwe, Go!

Go! also says: All touring maps should be this good.

This is the most comprehensive map of the Overberg ever published, and is the only detailed tourist map of the area currently in print.

This double sided A1, full-relief map covers the whole of the official Overberg Tourism Region. The main map extends from Somerset West along the coast to Cape Hangklip, Hermanus thence to Cape Agulhas and on eastwards to Port Beaufort/Witsand and the Breede River, then north to Heidelberg, Barrydale and Montagu. From Robertson the map extends west to Villiersdorp and back to Stellenbosch.

The reverse side of the map includes enlarged inset maps of 24 of the larger towns in the region, at the greatly-enlarged scale of 1:25 000, or 4cm to the kilometre. These beautifully-drawn street maps are based on the latest available information.  All roads from National Highways to minor gravel roads, with distances are shown;

  • Full GPS coordinates in DD MM SS format for all road junctions;
    Smileys indicate the most scenic routes;
  • 30+ different types of attractions from farm stalls, abseiling, horse riding and golf courses to game viewing, botanical gardens and historical sites;
  • Many accommodation establishments, especially those out of towns;
  • The best whale-watching sites, over 200 shipwreck sites;
  • A unique key to the meanings of Khoisan place names.

1. Our digital maps are effectively snapshots of our paper maps. They are not interactive [enlargement does not reveal greater detail] nor does removing elements, eg title pane, reveal more mapped area. That said, they can be enlarged or reduced to the limits of their resolution [300 dpi] with complete flexibility.
2. iPHONES: We have recently been made aware that some iPhones store picture content in the Cloud, not on the phone, necessitating downloads every time you want to use the map. Seems that Apple wasn't thinking about the vast areas of the earth with no wifi or phone reception. Work around this by installing a flash memory card in your phone if possible, so that the maps are always immediately available. This problem does not seem to occur on Android and other phones, as far as we know. Any info from users would be very helpful!
3. Please remember our recommendation: that you download your digital purchases to a laptop or other hard drive before transferring them [if required] to a tablet or smartphone.
4. Please note that digital products are NOT RETURNABLE! How could we possibly know whether they have been completely erased from all your devices? Please be fair!

Even reading the map is an adventure. All the new places to see and routes to try out. A practical piece of art.

Have had this map for ages, since it was first published. Has now become well worn, hence me buying the newer version. Have tried most of the gravel roads doing quite a number of motorbike trips. Excellent!

Ken McCrindle
