The Western Cape is a beautiful and diverse region of South Africa that includes the vibrant city of Cape Town, South Africa's number-one tourist destination, the romantic winelands, the starkly beautiful West Coast and Karoo, the charming Overberg area and the lush Garden Route.
In addition to Cape Town, major centres in the Western Cape include Stellenbosch, Worcester, Paarl and George.
Vegetation is also extremely diverse, with one of the world's seven floral kingdoms almost exclusively endemic to the province, namely the Cape Floral Kingdom, most of which comprises Fynbos. The Western Cape is extremely rich in species diversity, with more plant species occurring on Table Mountain than the entire United Kingdom. The Western Cape is home to various types of shrubs, thousands of flowering plants and various small trees.
