2243 Things To Do in Western Cape

The Western Cape and Cape Town are undoubtedly regarded as among the most beautiful places to visit in the world. Rich in contrasting regions like the Overberg, the Cape Winelands, the Klein Karoo, and the West Coast that present variations in weather, landscape and activities that encompass hiking, wine tasting, whale watching and helicopter flips, the Western Cape has a distinctive appeal. From the mother city’s Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch and Robben Island to a drive through the Swartberg Pass, Bird Island on the West Coast, the Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn and the countless beaches that line the coastline, there is no shortage of things to do.
