We have lived here for 20 years and it is the best area for raising a family and you have the advantage of having everything of the best at your doorstep, the best schools, so much natural beauty with both the mountains and the sea right near all the tourist activities but in a safe environment and numerous outdoor activities...

The perfect place to brunch, not a great Friday night party. The quality of food and particularly brunch options is vast!

It's hard to review the place where you've grown up... it'll always be special to me, whenever I visit. It's nice to see that some things will never change.

Southern Suburbs is a great area to stay as it's close to Cape Town and also the Winelands. Newlands village has some excellent restaurants and coffee shops. Cavendish Square is close by for those who like shopping.

The Southern Suburbs of Cape Town are easy to enjoy. They're safe but do need a bit of driving to enjoy. Heart of the place is Newlands...brewery, Rugby, Cricket, Cavendish shopping and lots of small coffee shops and restaurants. It's a nice neighbourhood. Moving further afield there's Rondebosch...but nothing much going on there...and Bishopscourt and Constantia. Bishopscourt is the home... More

My favourite areas in the south is Newlands and Rondebosch. I love the old buildings and giant trees. Being only 7km from the CBD, Rondebosch gives off a relaxing vibe yet is close to the city. Known for UCT and fantastic schools. Property very expensive and sought after.

the southern suburbs are originally little villages along the main road from cape town to muizenburg, by the false bay. it's an exciting road to drive in a slow pace. each suburb is different and each main road has something new to offer a visitor. if you are on a bicycle is a delight to ride this way to false...
