We begin the tour driving southeast on the N2 from Cape Town via Sir Lowry's Pass heading towards the Cape Overberg - a region of rugged mountain ranges, picturesque vistas, rolling wheat and canola fields. At the top of Sir Lowry's Pass we stop for an opportunity of a picture shoot and a spectacular view of False Bay lying below.
The journey continues through the beautiful green, gold and brown citrus orchards of the Overberg, further on at a Farm stall off the N2 we stop for some refreshments, thereafter our trip takes us through the small town of Caledon - a town established in the 18th century to cater for travellers seeking relief and healing at the nearby hot springs over the the past three centuries.
In Bredasdorp we visit the Shipwreck museum - home to striking visual displays and a fascinating collection of shipwreck artifacts and a treasure house of figureheads and lifeboats, porcelain, cannons, anchors, old bottles and coins from a number of European countries.
Before the Suez Canal was constructed a trade route between Western Europe and the East was established round the tip of Africa along the coastline of Cape Agulhas this part of the route proved to be treacherous for ships passing by resulting in it being named the graveyard of ships. In 1840 international pressure, especially from Eastern Cities and also from London resulted in the decision to establish a lighthouse at the foot of Africa which was later known as the Cape Agulhas Lighthouse.
