Stanford in the Overberg on the Cape Whale Coast

With the Klein River meandering through this picturesque village, Stanford offers one of the finest bird watching venues in the Overberg.

A popular weekend getaway for city slickers, this town is home to several permanent residents who prefer the fresh air and tranquility of this interesting little Overberg town.

There are a multitude of country restaurants serving excellent cuisine made from the freshest ingredients, art and craft shops, hiking trails, cruising down the Klein River on the African Queen or kayaking on the river.

Not to be missed is the Birkenhead Brewery which not only produces its own local beer but has planted extensive vineyards which will soon come into production. You can also enjoy a great meal at the restaurant on the premises. Magnificent views.
