The Scenic South – What’s in a name?

Abbreviated by Cape Point, energized by the Storms of the ‘Fairest Cape in all the world’, the Scenic South at the south western extremity of the African continent is `scenic ‘ every sense of the word. The Far South Peninsula, or Scenic South as we prefer to call it,together with the beautiful Overberg,  is our home. Using the connecting and information sharing technology of the internet, the Scenic South community website aims to connect all Our People, give a voice to Our Passions, and celebrate Our Pastimes to encourage united, informed and active communities. Despite being localised is the southern end of Africa, we hope to also capture an international audience.

Your positive active involvement will contribute to making Scenic South relevant and current.

We would love to receive original articles from you about issues significant to you or to our communities and photos that celebrate life in the Scenic South.

About us:

In early Nov 2009 came online. Originated by yoga teacher cum small time publisher Viv von der Heyden and environmentalist Kim Kruyshaar it grew out of a shared passion for Fish Hoek and the Scenic South Peninsula, a desire to do their bit to help connect the diverse communities living here and to spread the message of healthy, green, sustainable and conscious living.

Changes came over time as they always do, Kim leaving to focus on her own business, Viv and her hubby moving to the Overberg and Michele King from Scarborough joining the Scenic South to partner Viv in January 2015, bringing with her twenty years of experience in the marketing and business development world. Michele also owns Puzhr Peninsula, a Digital Marketing Franchise.

The Scenic South already has a strong online presence and with the complementary skills of the two co-owners is set to forge ahead.
