Western Cape Travel Guide

The Western Cape is so different to the rest of South Africa. It's kind of tacked on to the bottom of Africa - the full stop of the exclamation mark that is this amazing continent.

Matjiesfontein Town of Central Karoo

A gem not too far from Cape Town - If you like history then Matjiesfontein is a must. Don't make the mistake of thinking that you can see it all in one morning. The museum at the station is simply packed with social history items relating to Victorian life in South Africa (be sure to go downstairs to the basement displays). We were sorry not to make the bus tour in the red London bus ( it runs at 6pm from Mon to Sat). There is also a transport museum and other interesting places to explore. A must is to have a drink at the Lairds Arms next door to the hotel where the piano is still played every day.

Tulbagh Town of Breede River Valley

Great Crystal cave - We visited the Crystal cave. It is an amazing shop and the owner is absolutely wonderful. Great home industry with an amazing chilly sauce.
