The Western Cape extends from the Cape of Good Hope 400km north and 500km east. It is South Africa’s fourth-largest province and bounded by the Northern and Eastern Cape.

It is best known for Cape Town, South Africa’s ‘Mother City’, a popular travel destination with its iconic Table Mountain and beautiful beaches, among many other attractions.

The Western Cape is home to the West Coast National Park, famous for birds and spring flowers (in late August and September) and the Cederberg, an area of contrast where 71 000ha of rugged mountains are offset in spring by carpets of yellow, orange, blue and purple flowers.

Along the province’s eastern coastline lies the picturesque Garden Route, which stretches several hundred kilometres from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. This is one of the country’s most popular routes.

The wine-growing areas of Stellenbosch, Paarl, Wellington, Franschhoek, Ceres, Worcester, Bonnievale and Robertson are popular attractions, where a Mediterranean climate favours the production of superb wines.

The province is also renowned for its fresh seafood, from line fish to lobster, snoek and hake.

Cape Town International Airport is the second busiest in the country, after OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.

From the waterfront hotels of Cape Town to campsites in national parks, guest houses, B&Bs and luxury apartments, a variety of accommodation options are available to suit all tastes.

Table Mountain is Cape Town’s most famous landmark. A cable car trip to the top of the mountain is the perfect way to orientate yourself on your first trip to the city. On a clear day at the top you should be able to see Robben Island in Table Bay, the place where former president Nelson Mandela was once held prisoner. Many visitors visit both these attractions in a day.

Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa’s second-largest city, ranks among the most beautiful in the world. With its larger-than-life mountain overlooking the City Bowl, harbour, white beaches and Robben Island beyond, this is a tourist’s playground. Two World Heritage Sites, the sprawling Winelands, untouched nature reserves, beautiful botanic gardens and a buzzing waterfront are just the start of your adventure when you visit this special city.

With a population of 3.7 million, Cape Town is South Africa’s second most populous city, a quintessential melting pot of creativity, cuisine and colour.

Its strategic geographic position at the tip of Africa has seen foreign visitors stopping off at the Cape since the 1400s, each contributing unique cultural influences that make up the fabric of modern-day Cape Town.

Cape Winelands

Nestled within the Cape Fold Belt, a little way from the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town, are the Cape Winelands, a beautiful stretch of land where the finest South African wine is mulled. The Western Cape is known for its beautiful scenery and the Winelands are no exception – tar roads meander along endless valleys and vineyards, all shaded by the mountainous terrain of the Outeniqua Mountains.

The towns that make up the Winelands are culturally and historically important in South African settler history, and Dutch architecture, coupled with valleys in vibrant shades of green, make for a unique and scenic getaway. The French settler town of Franschhoek, the vineyards of Paarl, the leafy Constantia Village and the flowering city of Stellenbosch all make up the spine of the Cape Winelands. Experience the ultimate adventure for every wine-lover with East Cape Tours!
