With dramatically spectacular views of Cape Town Harbour and city central, Higgovale is an oasis on the edge of the city.

Tucked up against the mountain, the area is rich in natural beauty, with lush foliage and trees spreading throughout the neighbourhood and upward towards the summit of Lion’s Head. Higgovale’s small, intimate community borders Camps Bay and Oranjezicht, hugging Lions Head for a sense of security and comfort.

  • This small, affluent suburb has a prime vantage point and easy access to Camps Bay, the city centre, and the Waterfront
  • No trip to Cape Town is complete without spending time on the top of Table Mountain, whether by hiking one of the trails or riding up in the cable car
  • Higgovale Quarry has about 15 great slab/face climb routes, with some of these very good for beginners to learn the ropes

This is a wonderful area for those who enjoy mountain walks and hikes. Trails leading up to Table Mountain are easily reached from the suburb and are an excellent opportunity for viewing the spectacular views from this vantage point.

It is not necessary to do the full climb all the way to the top of the mountain if you're just looking for an hour or two of fresh air and mild exercise. The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway is an excellent means of transportation up the mountain instead! Please do exercise caution when attempting some of the longer trails. We highly recommend booking an experienced guide for these.

A wide variety of restaurants can be found in nearby Kloof Street along with antique shops, delis, boutiques, and art galleries. Higgovale allows a sense of absolute peace and privacy while having everything you need within easy reach.
