Perhaps South Africa’s prettiest region, the Western Cape is a perfect holiday destination. Not only is the scenery absolutely gorgeous but some of the world’s best food and wine seems to have found its home in this heavenly corner of the globe. The Western Cape includes Cape Town and you can read more about the city here. Beyond this are of course South Africa’s winelands, a series of stunning valleys and small towns overflowing with friendly wine farms. Spend a day (or several) sampling the cape’s finest vintages alongside world-class food in beautiful surroundings. Personally, we recommend you base yourself in Franschhoek, the prettiest of the valleys with a range of excellent hotels to match the surroundings. Beyond the winelands and heading along the Garden Route you’ll find the small and charming coastal town of Hermanus, one of the best spots for whale watching from June to November. When southern right whales come to the bay to calve and mate.
