Western Cape Accommodation Specials

Situated on the south-western coast of the country, the province is the southern-most tip of Africa and is the fourth largest of the nine provinces. This area offers everything from spectacular mountains to white sandy beaches, cities, quaint fishing villages and small towns – all bringing something unique to the Western Cape.

The long history of humankind in the Western Cape is possibly preserved here better than in any other region in the country. This is demonstrated by ancient Bushmen paintings found in the Cederberg at Kagga Kamma.

Over 50% of all cheese in South Africa is produced in the Western Cape, and of course the wine! As the most extensive wine producing region in South Africa, the Western Cape is famous for wine production and some of the most beautiful vineyards in the world.
A maritime climate and accompanying vegetation can be found in the coastal regions with cold, wet winters and warm, dry summers. Much of the remainder of the land to the north has a Mediterranean climate changing to semi-arid farther north.

Inland daily maximum temperatures usually range from 20 °C in winter and up to 32 °C during summer months.

The vegetation is also incredibly diverse, with one of the world’s seven floral kingdoms almost exclusively endemic to the province, namely the Cape Floral Kingdom, most of which is covered by Fynbos.

Karoo drought-resistant shrubbery dominates the arid interior. The West Coast and Little Karoo are semi-arid regions and are typified by many species of succulents and drought-resistant shrubs and acacia trees.

Typical species are hardwoods of exceptional height, such as Yellowwood, Stinkwood and Ironwood trees.

There are even two permanent colonies of penguins found on the coast, with frequent visits from southern right whales.
