Nature's beauty: Agulhas plain flooding

News24 Travel Reader and photographer, Peter Chadwick captures the striking aftermath of the Agulhas plain flooding, situated in the Western Cape' Overberg Region.

The twitter-verse experts on South Africa's spectacular Overberg have come together to give you the heads up on what to take advantage of during the next couple of months.
 
Driving southeast on the N2 from Cape Town, just over the Hottentots Holland Mountains via Sir Lowry’s Pass is where you can expect to be spoiled for choice  - as the Overberg offers up clusters of exceptional beaches and beautiful fynbos landscapes of green, gold, pink and brown.

Eco-adventurers can tackle the number of 4x4 trails or be submerged in an adrenalin-infused shark cage dive. For those in search of a more leisurely pace, unparalleled whale watching from some of the best land-based viewing spots around are in order as is a meander through the areas up and coming wine farms.  But don't take our word for it.

Here are some of our favourite tweets and you can always head over to #discoveroverberg for real time updates of what to see and do in the area.
