Rebecca Brayton: This South African Province is roughly the same size as U.S. State of Louisiana. Hi I'm Rebecca Brayton and welcome to watchmojo.com and today we'll checking of the Geography of the Western Cape.
The South Western most point of the African continent is found in the Western Cape. This point Cape Aughulus is also know as the dividing point between the Indian and Atlantic oceans. Much of the Western Cape is found within the Cape fold belt, which is arrange of folded rock mountains. These mountains are not high in comparison with other mountain ranges however there are quite deep and grand to look at. Between these mountain ranges lush valleys are created. In the North, the Karoo region is made up of dry plateaus.
Table Mountain is one remarkable element in the landscape of Western Cape; it is even featured on the flag of Cape Town. The Western Cape is full of indigenous flora; despite this country's magnificent coastline it's not just this natural landmark that draws visitors to the South African Paradise.
