Western Cape

Western Cape is South Africa’s most popular tourist destination and offers the urban thrills of Cape Town, its adjacent wine country and an aura of the rich political history of South Africa. The Overberg’s perfect whale-watching (Jun-Nov) perches provide excitement of a different nature. The Garden Route’s lakes and forests and the Klein Karoo’s ostrich-farming towns and vineyards present another take on the Cape

All the delights of the Cape Peninsula is a awe-inspiring, and within an hour you can exchange urban landscapes for the charming towns and villages like Camps Bay, Hout Bay via Chapman’s peak drive, Boulder’s Penguin beach and the majestic Cape of Good Hope.

The Winelands are within an easy 1 hour reach of Cape Town with destinations, such as Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek ready to be explored.

Hermanus is a prime whale-watching location, and also a base from which to organise shark-cave diving. Further afield, the delights of the Garden Route unfold, with more inspiring scenery to be viewed on thrilling drives down the coast and over mountain passes.

Whilst we provide information about the Winelands in a separate section, it is also possible to visit on a day-trip when you are based in Cape Town.
