City Bowl Suburbs
Made up of four main neighbourhoods, the City Bowl suburbs feature flats, houses, boutique hotels, music venues, restaurants and backpackers. The Oranjezicht City Farm used to stretch as far as the world-renowned Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel and overlooked the bastion of the Castle of Good Hope. You can still visit the actual farm in Upper Orange Street. The weekly Oranjezicht City Farm Market at the V&A Waterfront is not to be missed! The 12-hectre De Waal Park is listed as a Provincial Heritage Site and is the ideal picnic spot, children’s play area and playground for canines. You can also enjoy concerts in the old Edwardian bandstand during summer.
For a somewhat small neighbourhood, Tamboerskloof is vibrant with shops, bars and restaurants. The original main residence of the Tamboerskloof Farm is also part of the Cape Milner Hotel. Between Tamboerskloof and Gardens, Kloof Nek Road leads to Camps Bay and features the well-known Dinkel Bakery and the Kloof Nek Superette. After World War I, many European countries settled in Vredehoek after peace was declared, hence the name.
Hugged between Upper Buitenkant Street and Derry Street, you will find that the roads form more triangles than blocks and have one of the biggest asymmetrical four-way stops in Cape Town. Because Vredehoek is situated on the slopes of Table Mountain, you will find numerous hiking trails, picnic spots and running space for dogs.
