Canal Walk is indeed very big, but apart from its size, its stated policy of driving out independent retailers and bringing in large national & international chain stores means that Canal Walk's tenant mix is no different from any other mall in South Africa, which is such a shame and a real missed opportunity in my opinion.

This is a huge mall with many shops. The ideal place to do some shopping in Cape Town. Safe and there is paid undercover parking. Many restaurants as well.

Vast variety up upmarket shops, but the number of visitors are a bit overwhelming on month end. Enjoyed refreshments at Mugg& Bean - good value for money!

This is the one-stop shopping experience in Cape Town. You will need a full day to visit all the shops. Easy access from the N1 with ample safe parking. The many stores include local and international brands, as well as plenty good sit-down and take-away restaurants, and also plenty coffee shops.

Massive mall with so many stores! Has a tendency to be very crowded though. Almost right across the highway/road from Ratanga amusement park.

This mall offers plenty safe parking, and all the shops imaginable are here under one roof. It is a one-stop-shopping experience. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes - you can expect a lot of walking. For good sit down restaurants, visit the upper floor. ideal for those who want to shop where the locals shop.

This is indeed on of the biggest shopping malls in South Africa. One needs an entire day to visit every shop. There is an entertainment area and many restaurants to choose from. Great for families, friends, solo etc.

Working just across the road and using frequently, it's very evident that more upmarket overseas boutique stores are finding a home here, especially UK brands. Competition growing, which keeps a lid on the prices too.
