Accommodation along the Overberg Whale Coast and Cape South Coast
Western Cape, South Africa - Bredasdorp & Caledon

Bredasdorp, Overberg, South Africa


Bredasdorp is a small Overberg town located in the Western Cape Province in South Africa. It was established around a Dutch Reformed Church in 1838 and is still strongly founded in its agricultural roots. The town was named after Cape Town's first major, Michiel van Breda, also known as the father of South Africa’s merino sheep industry. Van Breda and Pieter Voltelyn van der Byl, could not agree where the church should be built. As a result two churches were built, and two towns, Bredasdorp and Napier, were established. Besides the sheep farming, the town also boasts other agricultural activities, including wheat, milk, and indigenous fynbos cultivation.
