Western Cape

With coasts bordering the Indian and Atlantic oceans, the Western Cape province is well-known for its port city of Cape Town, also known as the “Mother City” of the country. Cape Town is loved by tourists and locals alike. Table Mountain offers breath-taking views of the greater Cape, and the city itself is of a laid-back nature. One can sip on the Winelands’ award-winning wines and go for a hike in the Stellenbosch Mountains, a mere 20-minute drive from Cape Town. Explore the fishing towns along the West Coast, with its friendly people and down-to-earth cuisine, or enjoy whale watching in the town of Hermanus. The possibilities and sights are endless at the southernmost point of Africa!
