Western Cape DestinationsHiggovale, City Bowl

Higgovale is one of those wonderful suburbs that, as well as being sought after, upper-class, tasteful and dignified, has some of the most spectacular views from its situation on the slopes of Table Mountain with wonderful little roads that run at tangents to one another in a bid to make it up the steep slopes on which many homes here are housed.

It makes finding your way through this green and leafy suburb something of an adventure - particularly when meeting the city council garbage truck on its way down whilst youíre on your way up a particularly narrow incline.

Despite being perched above the city in this fashion, getting into its centre is merely a case of setting the car in neutral, if your brakes are in order. Youíre only moments away from Kloof Street and the many bistros and quirky shops, and Table Mountain National Park is literally on residentsí doorsteps, giving one easy access to nature, and residents the best of both worlds.

Higgovale Quarry, relatively unknown outside of the climbing fraternity, was once a shooting range, and lies just beyond Molteno Reservoir, providing some great slab/face climbs, all of which are bolted. Life up here on the slopes is sedate and quiet and most homes look out over the city and Table Bay, almost around the mountain to Hout Bay, on a good day.

Getting to the Atlantic beaches is a quick 10 minute drive, and the V&A Waterfront is not only visible from this part of the city, but also easily accessible from here.
