With its diverse beauty, the Western Cape draws more travelers than any of the other provinces of South Africa. Probably the main reason for its appeal to local holidaymakers and international tourists and travelers is its vast coastline, stretching from Lamberts Bay on the West Coast to Plettenberg Bay in the Garden Route. In strong contrast with the coastal regions, its lush indigenous forests in the Garden Route and world-renowned vineyards in the Winelands lies the windswept and arid plains of the Karoo which holds its own special allure.
Of course no travel to South Africa is complete without a visit to the Cape Town, South Africa’s own Mother City. Dominated by the iconic Table Mountain, Cape Town offers the local and international traveller a true taste of South Africa’s rainbow nation. Whether you are interested in climbing a mountain, surfing, savoring some of the spicy Malay cooking, whale watching, shopping for quality gifts or wine tasting, Cape Town offers the traveller a myriad of different cultures, tastes, smells, attractions, and adventures.
In keeping with its status as an international travel destination Cape Town also offers the traveler to South Africa a wide variety of quality accommodation to suit every pocket and taste. Accommodation in Cape Town ranges from world-class five-star hotels, quality, boutique guest houses and self-catering apartments, to budget accommodation in tourist class hotels and homely bed and breakfast establishments.
