Every conceivable shop you could want. From speciality shops, to major department stores, to African tourism souvenirs arcades.

Just a huge version of the Blue Route Mall, and more difficult to find one's way around. No atmosphere or decent eating places, just the usual chain junk food eateries.

Took a trip to Canal Walk on a rainy Saturday lunchtime .. Lots of variety of shops to choose from, plus the bazaar type little stalls connecting the legs. I would recommend this place to any serious shoppers as it has everything from Adidas, Reebok thru to La Senza plus the cheaper end of the clothing range too. Price wise... More

I visited Canal walk for dinner in April, long story short my car got knocked by another driver while I was having dinner, Lawrence and his team noticed the incident as it happened. They took pictures and got all the other drivers particulars (they actually wanted to drive off) and waited for my return. Even though this was such an... More

If shopping is something you enjoy then Canal Wall is definitely a place you should visit. There is a large variety in everything from designer shops to restaurants. The opening hours are 9am to 9pm. Which is long compared to other shopping malls. Try to avoid over month end as it tends to get quite busy and full.

This shopping centre is a 10 minute drive outside of main Cape Town. Here you will find all the main shops and many others selling goods much cheaper than the famed 'Waterfront' You could easily spend a whole day in this beautiful clean and safe complex
