The Western Cape

Often known as the “Fairest Cape” – in honour of its majestic beauty. This area is located in the south west of South Africa and has so many iconic names and drawcards.


From the awe-inspiring views from Table Mountain, to visiting history Robben Island – for so long the enforced home of legendary Nelson Mandela, to Kistenbosch Gardens – acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world. World class vineyards and restaurants to suit the palate of most discerning diner.


Wildlife ranging from whales, sharks, dolphins and penguins, while you can also discover the only genuine free-roaming Big Five safari experience in the Western Cape at Gondwana Private Game Reserve.


Arrive in style and see the Mother City from the back of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Treat yourself or someone who deserves it to an outlaw experience, no licence necessary. Thanks to Cape Bike Travel’s chauffeured rides, those who’ve always dreamed of a hard-fisted, free-wheeling outlaw life can mount the back of a twin-cam 1690cc Harley-Davidson Electra Glide motorcycle and careen around the curves of some of the most scenic roads in the world or simply arrive at any special event easy-rider style.  

These are just a few of the many special things The Independent Traveller can do to make your Western Cape experience special. For more information and travel inspirations, contact us.
