Mild temperatures, lush forests and supreme comfort aren’t what many people think of when they hear ‘Africa’. But then again, few people explore South Africa’s Western Cape. It’s their loss, really; this trip incorporates an unbeatable combination of beaches, coves, cuisine and accommodation. And there’s plenty of the other Africa on hand, too; the region’s ruggedly beautiful scenery guarantees you’ll get plenty of both the Africa you know—and the one you just fell in love with.
