Western Cape

Info Image

If three pyramids are the symbol of Africa's far north, then a flat-topped mountain is the symbol of its far south. Cape Town nestles in the curve of Table Mountain at the start of the hook-shaped Cape Peninsula, which ends in the jagged cliffs of Cape Point. It is a region of majestic mountains, colourful patchworks of farmland set in lovely valleys, long beaches and, further inland, the wide-open landscape of the semidesert Karoo. Two oceans meet on the coast of the Western Cape, the cold Atlantic Ocean is in the west, while the warmer Indian Ocean lies on the southern coast.
