Known as "the capital" of the Overberg, Caledon town is on the national N2 road 90 minutes from Cape Town. It started as a cattle post and grew into a major agricultural resource for the then Colony in the mid 1800s. Carpets of wheat, barley and canola cover the surrounding landscape. It was in Caledon that local farmers pioneered Merino sheep breeding and revolutionised the South African wool industry. The area is famous for its mineral-rich hot springs originally discovered by the indigenous Khoi-khoi people. Visit the town museum or the Caledon Wild Flower Garden with its 135 protea species. Hike through the Nature Reserve. You'll see indigenous fynbos, trees, birds (spot the Blue Crane) plus incredible views of the Swartberg Mountains.
