Flanked by the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, the Western Cape boasts almost 1 000 km of unspoilt beaches, incredible scenic beauty and year round moderate weather. The tapestry of cultural diversity is evident in the variety of cuisine, architecture, arts and crafts, museums and historical landmarks. This province is blessed with an unparalleled diverse splendour from the pretty fishing villages of the West Coast and the arid areas that are covered in beautiful carpets of flowers between August and October to the impressive winelands and the gorgeous coastline along the famous Garden Route. Inland the Klein Karoo is characterised by wide-open spaces, undulating hills and huge ostrich farms. Scores of Southern Right, Humpback and Brydes Whales frequent the coastal waters between June and November offering a further dimension to this spectacular province.
There is nowhere quite like it. It is in Africa, and of Africa, but yet so different. Perched between the ocean and the mountain and with a South African National Park as its heart, the city is steeped in history, cultural diversity and is fast becoming one of the world’s most sought after destinations. It is the oldest city in South Africa, it has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years and offers beautiful beaches, seaside resorts, panoramic drives, inland wine farms and spectacular scenery.
Wine and fruit farms thrive in the Cape and most of the major estates are within easy reach of the city. Not only do the winelands offer a true wine experience but the region also holds many hiking trails and rock paintings dating back 7 000 years. This area is blessed with some of the finest bistros and restaurants often housed in historical buildings of Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture.
