Attractions in Western Cape, South Africa

Golf Tours in Western Cape
With a golf tour you will enjoy the picturesque beauty that Western Cape is famous for while playing golf on the best golf courses South Africa has to offer. When you are not playing golf you will get the opportunity to explore the region extensively and get to know the history and beauty of Western Cape. With trips to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held captive for 27 years, and up Table Mountain to enjoy the unhindered views of the Western Cape and the Peninsula, a golf tour is the best way for the golf lover to experience the best the Western Cape has to offer.

Table Mountain and Cable Way
The best way to experience the beauty of the Western Cape is to take a hike up Table Mountain. The unforgettable view of the Western Cape that you will encounter at the summit of the mountain will definitely make the effort worth your while. For the less energetic amongst us the cable car is an good alternative with some phenomenal views on the way to the top.

Table Mountain is home to over 1400 species of flowering plants, which are particularly spectacular in spring. For an adrenalin rush like no other consider doing the abseil. It's also possible to walk up the mountain from both the City Bowl side or the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens side.

Ecotourism in Western Cape
Table Mountain is a vital part of the attraction of the Western Cape. You can walk, climb, bike, absail, para-glide the mountain or take the elegant new Swiss-designed cable car to the top of the mountain. And of course, there are other climbs in the mountains near Cape Town; on Lion's Head, or in mountains above Kalk Bay or Simonstown.

Table Mountain, Lion's Head, Devil's Peak, and the other mountains in and around Cape Town offer walks that are gentle to challenging within easy distance of the city centre. Locals go to Newlands Forest, the Constantia Green Belt, or walk on the Sea Point promenade. There are several excellent guides to walks in and around the Western Cape.

A lot of the best nature in the Western Cape is unexpected: a school of hundreds of dolphins early in the morning off Camps Bay; whales in False Bay; baboons with babies on their backs engrossed at the roadside near Cape Point. Even in the Cape Point Reserve, viewing's are wonderfully unpredictable. If you want to be certain, try the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront, or the World of Birds. Kirstenbosch offers the best detailed introduction to the Cape fynbos floral kingdom.

Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve in The Western Cape
Visit the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve for awesome scenery, fantastic walks, deserted beaches and spotting wildlife. You can take one of the many tours that whip into the reserve, now part of the Cape Peninsula National Park or hire a car. If the weather is good - or even if it isn't - you can easily spend at least a day here. It's particularly beautiful in spring, when the wildflowers are in bloom. There are a number of picnic spots as well as a decent restaurant at Cape Point, generally packed with the tour bus crowds. It's not a difficult walk, but if you're feeling lazy a funicular railway runs up from beside the restaurant to the souvenir kiosk next to the old lighthouse. Pick up a map at the entrance gate if you intend to go walking, but bear in mind that there is minimal shade in the park and that the weather can change quickly.

Western Cape Boat Charters
A boat charter is one of the best ways to see the beauty of the Western Cape. You can get an excellent view of its various mountains and slopes, smooth-rocked bays and rugged capes. You can also take a boat charter to the famous Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. The Island is also known for its startling natural beauty and many species of birds.

Other fun boating expeditions are: a fun family trip on a bobbing boat in the Waterfront, an elegant champagne breakfast while moored off Clifton Beach on a luxury yacht, a festive sunset booze cruise with a bunch of friends to Hout Bay, or a romantic soujourn under the stars on a specially chartered vessel.

At the V&A Waterfront, Water Taxis operate regularly between 9am and 9pm, connecting all sections of the harbour. From here operate several Boat and Yacht Charters and cruises, which are undertaken weather permitting.
