Cape Town : Western Cape Province

Cape Town, the capital of the Western Cape Province is the second largest city in South Africa. It is home to the country's Houses of Parliament and is the legislative capital of South Africa. Located in the south-west corner of the country near the Cape of Good Hope, it is also the most southern city in Africa.

Cape Town - also known as the Mother City, is one of the most iconic cities in the world offering numerous interesting attractions, including a wealth of history, wildlife and culture. The city also offers a good base for exploring the world-famous Cape Winelands around Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek.

Cape Town was inhabited, for thousands of years, by ancestors of the Kalahari Bushmen, while the European history of Cape Town dates back to 1652. Jan van Riebeeck, on behalf of the VOC (Dutch East Indies Company), established a trading post there. The first European settlers in Cape Town were mainly Dutch, with some French Huguenots that had been forced to flee from religious persecution in their home country. The cities of Stellenbosch and Paarl located in today's Cape Winelands, were explored and settled by these early settlers, who became known as Voortrekkers (Pioneers of European descent) and it was from this area that exploration of the rest of South Africa started.

The summer months, from December to February are usually hot, with low humidity, so it is not uncomfortable, while the winter months, between June and August tend to be quite wet. Evenings can also get very cold, with temperatures as low as 2 or 3C. 5-7C is average during winter evenings, with daytime temperatures averaging between 9-15C. The winter months are often very cloudy with fewer hours of sunshine.

Garden Route : Eastern Cape Province

The Garden Route is a well known route which takes its name from the verdant and ecologically diverse vegetation found along a number of lagoons and lakes dotted along this popular stretch of coast. The route stretches from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the small town of Storms River, which is in the extreme west of the neighbouring Eastern Cape Province. This scenic stretch of South Africa's south-eastern coastline includes towns such as Mossel Bay, Oudtshoorn, Knysna, George and Plettenberg Bay.

The area has an oceanic climate, with mild to cool winters and mild to warm summers. According to the Guiness Book of Records, the region has the mildest climate in South Africa and, after Hawaai, the second mildest climate in the world. Temperatures seldom fall below 10C in winter and rarely climb beyond 28C in summer. There is rainfall year-round, with a slight increase in the spring months.

The Garden Route is located between the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma Mountains and the Indian Ocean. These indigenous forests are a unique mix of Temperate Forest and Cape Fynbos, offering a variety of habitat (fynbos, wetlands and forest) for nearly 300 different species of bird life.
