More info about Western Cape
The Western Province on the South Western corner of South Africa is the most beautiful province. It has an extensive coastline and magnificent scenery, and attracts the most tourism.
With majestic mountain ranges, exquisite valleys and long pristine white beaches the landscape is one of extraordinary natural beauty. It has the cold Atlantic on the west coast and the warm Indian Ocean along the south.
In the interior is the arid Karoo plateau.
Cape Town is the capital city, dramatically spectacular beneath the towering Table Mountain, overlooking Table Bay. Early settlers from Europe settled below the mountains where the rivers met, and built a harbour in Table Bay.
The San people had called the area Camissa, meaning Sweet Waters.
Other major towns of the Western Cape are Stellenbosch, Paarl, Worcester and George.
Inland from Cape Town are the Winelands and fruit growing farms with small towns like Franschhoek and Wellington, established 300 years ago by Huguenots... Show more
