The Western Cape attracts the lion's share of foreign tourists to South Africa. It’s a region of majestic mountains, colourful patchworks of farmland set in lovely valleys, long beaches and, further inland, the wide-open landscape of the semi desert Karoo. The diverse cultural backgrounds of its inhabitants give the province a cosmopolitan flavour with a rich diversity of arts, culture, music, a buzzing nightlife, excellent wines and superb cuisine. Its capital, the City of Cape Town is a jewel and the Garden Route and the Overberg are popular coastal tourism areas. Other major cities include Stellenbosch, Worcester, Paarl, and George.
The Western Cape is bordered by the Northern Cape, the Eastern Cape, the Indian Ocean, and the Atlantic Ocean, and is home to the smallest of the world's six floral kingdoms, the Cape Floral Kingdom, containing more plant species than the whole of Europe and characterised by fynbos.
The West Coast and Little Karoo are semi-arid regions; the interior, the Karoo is an arid area with huge horizons whilst the Garden Route is extremely lush, with temperate rainforest covering many areas. Warm welcoming people, makes the Cape an awe-inspiring destination.
The Western Cape is one of the great wine areas of the world, famous as much for its spectacular setting as its excellent wines.
Most of the province is considered to have a Mediterranean climate with cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers. The interior Karoo has a semi-arid climate with cold, frosty winters and hot summers with occasional thunderstorms. The Garden Route and the Overberg on the south coast have a maritime climate with cool, moist winters and mild, moist summers. Mid-winter is June, mid-summer December.
