Western Cape

Travel to Western Cape – Cape Town, Winelands & Garden Route

Western Cape is justifiably the most visited province in South Africa. Situated on the south-western tip of the African continent, with the cold Atlantic Ocean along the west coast and the warmer Indian Ocean on the south, it is a region of breathtaking beauty, majestic mountains, rolling vineyards, wide beaches and lush valleys.

So rich in attractions is this province that a week could be spent in Cape Town alone. Important National Parks include Table Mountain, Karoo, Wilderness and West Coast – each quite unique and ideal for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Activities also abound in this province of variety – from wineland meanders to cycling in the Cape – there is something for everyone. The Western Cape also boasts one of the six accepted floral kingdoms of the world. Although the smallest of them all, the Western Cape Floral Kingdom, locally called fynbos, contains more plant species than the whole of Europe. These include the world-famous protea and heather.

  • Spend a few days in Cape Town and ascend Table Mountain for fine views
  • Head for the winelands for beautiful scenery and Cape Dutch architecture
  • Tour the world-famous Garden Route with its quaint towns and lush landscapes
