OVER­BERG GET­AWAY

Road Trip - - GEMS TRIP -

In the heart of the Over­berg in the Western Cape, at the mouth of the Breede River, is the small coastal town of Wit­sand. Nes­tled in this hid­den gem is Breedezicht Es­tate, of­fer­ing a qual­ity de­vel­op­ment to week­end guests or home­own­ers, look­ing for a life­style in­vest­ment. A mere 300 kilo­me­tres from Cape Town Cbd,wit­sand was once a bustling lit­tle town with a port where steam­boats loaded goods des­tined for the Cape Town mar­ket. To­day, Wit­sand boasts a va­ri­ety of of­fer­ings, from its fa­mous landmark of the Barry Me­mo­rial Church, built in 1849, to rup­tured re­mains of steamships, and the well-pre­served lit­tle harbour. Home to the en­dan­gered Cape Moun­tain Ze­bra and Cape Vul­ture,wit­sand presents a rich di­ver­sity of fauna and flora. With over 260 bird species, the largest con­cen­tra­tion of the en­dan­gered south­ern right whale, and 3,000 hectares of undis­turbed fyn­bos right on its doorstep, Wit­sand is an as­pi­ra­tion for in­vestors.
