Western Cape DestinationsSalt River, City Bowl

Salt River is a charming suburb that was once the industrial epicentre of Cape Town, thanks to its close proximity to the heart of the city. Over the decades, it has gone through highs and lows, which have left it with plenty of character and a story to tell. The apartheid regime left its mark on the country, and areas like Salt River are integral to keeping the lessons learnt alive in the minds and hearts of fellow South Africans.

Today, the Western Cape suburb of Salt River is occupied mainly by coloured folk with Cape Malay roots. It is brimming with schools, shops, businesses, and homes; and has a tangible vibe as locals and visitors bustle on the streets and go about their daily routines. This multifaceted area truly gives visitors a taste of the people of the Mother City; their hospitality, culture and way of life. It is situated close to Table Bay. Other nearby suburbs include Woodstock, Observatory and the City Bowl.

From Salt River, world-renowned attractions (such as the V & A Waterfront, Table Mountain, Signal Hill, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the Cape Town International Convention Centre, and the City Bowl) are all close by, and easily accessible via the major motorways that service the entire city. In addition, Salt River is only about 15 kilometres from the Cape Town International Airport.
