      The name "Swartland" (= Blackland) is a reference to Renosterbos, once prevalent in the area, which turns black in the dry summers. Malmesbury, originally called Zwartlands, was laid out in at the heart of a fertile region cultivated by the Free Burghers (*) who, from the latter half of the 17th century could transport their produce to the Dutch East India Company in Cape Town . The Western Cape Province is roughly L-shaped, extending north and east from the Cape of Good Hope, in the southwestern corner of South Africa. It stretches about kilometres ( mi) northwards along the Atlantic coast and about kilometres ( mi) eastwards along the South African south coast (Southern Indian Ocean).Capital: Cape Town.

The voluminous Mesoproterozoic late orogenic porphyritic granitoids of the Spektakel and Oribi Gorge Suites from the Bitterfontein area (southwest Namaqualand) and Natal (Mzumbe and Margate Terranes), respectively, are comparable in terms of field relationships, structure, petrography, geochemistry and age, despite being situated over km apart within the Namaqua-Natal Metamorphic Province.
