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. Without a doubt, though, the Western Cape is South Africa's most visited province, and it's hardly surprising. With... Read more

Citrusdal Town of Cederberg

Sweet Citrusdal - Everyone we encountered were kind and friendly. We had breakfast at The Grapevine and it was just beautiful. Highly recommended!! We didn't spend too much time in the town but every time we are out there, we stop at the friendly Spar to stock up. A lovely town!

Vanrhynsdorp Town of West Coast

The ideal hub for exploring the Knertsvlakte area - Besides being a very safe town where you can walk the streets in the evening after dark, and besides having nice eating and sleeping accomodations, this is really a natural hub for the surrounding Knersvlakte desert area. The CapeNature organization has an office in town, there is a world renown succulent nursery there (Kookerboom/Quivertree Nursery). From either one you may get a permit to visit areas they own/govern. Or you could speak to Mike at Namaqua Lodge who arrange tours to similar surrounding areas.

Paradys op aarde - Dit is voorwaar n stukkie paradys op aarde ! Pragtige natuurskoon ! Kan die natuur en see albei ervaar ! It is truly a piece of heaven on earth. Beautiful scenery. One can experienced both nature and sea.

Stanford Town of Overberg

strange but interesting village - There isn't much too see particularly, but as a whole its worth a visit as it has a very specific spirit We hadn't the weather for it, but kayaking must be worth doing.
