Not many colourful birds in the Overberg as in some parts of the Americas or Asia, etc. but here is one of the few exceptions: the Paradise flycatcher.

Planning a long Eastern Weekend in the Overberg?

Well ….. There is this guest room at Studio98 along the main road in Napier. The guest room is known at the Banana House and has its own secluded and safe parking in the back. The Banana House is separated from the main house by a courtyard with splash pool; it sleeps 2 and is minimalistic decorated. But what’s more? It has its own water wise succulent garden where guests are bragging about PLUS it is one of the highest rated (by guests via booking.com) accommodations in the Overberg. Book directly and save money ( R750.00 instead of R 850.00.00 per night via third parties). Minimum stay: 2 nights. If you book 4 nights the fourth night is for free.

In the meantime ….

In the meantime in Napier, South Africa.

A veld fire with the surface of Table Mountain (if not: more).

The Overberg Fire Brigade including local farmers and their employees are keeping their heads cool. And then the local community supplying the fire fighters with food, drinks and fruit. After all Napier is a village where, out of tradition, people help each other.

The White Nguni of Napier

In Zulu culture ‘White is the colour of the ancestors, diviners and protection against lightning. As a result of this significance any white calf born in the byre of a commoner was automatically given to the king’.

In Napier, South Africa, recently a virtually white Nguni calf was born. Unfortunately (fortunately for the owner) Shaka Zulu does not live anymore.
