According to the information on Wkipedia, your climate is rather hot and dry. The temps appear to correspond somewhat with what we would call Zone 10, so as you look at plant information, you can look for plants hardy in USDA Zone 10.
Another consideration is precipitation, so when you look for plants, you'll want to look for things that thrive in desert locations, or at least with very little rainfall.
Of course, you'll also want to consider the soil composition and pH in your locality, as well as the amount of sun the plants will get where you want to put them.

Do you have any organizations of gardeners, or horticultural information, in your area? You might be able to find some by getting in touch with the nearest botanical garden, or university with a horticulture dept. These kinds of groups are the best way to get information specific to your neighborhood. This site may give you some ideas: http://www.thegardener.co.za/
