Western Cape DestinationsOranjezicht, City Bowl

Oranjezicht is a stylish little village, popular with the arty and trendy set, lying in the foothills of Table Mountain. From afar, homes here appear to lie relatively low on the mountain, but driving through the suburb, one quickly adjusts one’s perception - it’s quite a climb to reach parts of upmarket Oranjezicht in Cape Town, but well worth it.

Oranjezicht sits perched above Kloof Street, adjacent to Vredehoek with only Buitenkant Street separating the two. Homes here are large and gracious with enviable views of Table Mountain, the foreshore and the distant Hottentots Holland Mountains. Apartments here are popular with students from the Cape Technikon, and close to Gardens Centre, making shopping only a quick walk away and transport negligible.

Kloof Street, and the vibey restaurant and café culture, is within walking distance of Oranjezicht - although be prepared for the climb on the return journey. Getting into the city centre is a mere five minutes and you’re in the heart of bohemian Long Street, surrounded by buildings rich in history, restaurants, bistros and cafés, and various museums and galleries that will keep you entertained for the better part of two days.

It’s only 10 minutes’ drive from Oranjezicht to the Table Mountain cableway, just off Kloof Nek, and over the other side of the mountain are the Cape Town beaches of the Atlantic Ocean - Camps Bay and Clifton - that offer fantastic swimming, people watching and sun bathing opportunities.
