The Southern Suburbs of Cape Town include the residential areas of Rosebank, Rondebosch, Claremont, Newlands, Wynberg, Grassy Park, Tokai and Constantia. Of note in the area are the Cape Town University, the Rodes Memorial where antelope roam on the urban edge, the Newlands Forest which is an amazing, surprising tapestry of trees in a suburban setting, the award-winning Cavendish Square Shopping Centre and the Kirstenbocsh Botanical Garden with over 5 000 species of indigenous flora.
The inland region of the Cape Peninsula is dominated by the famous Constantia Valley, the birthplace of Cape wines - a breathtaking place of green forests, old vineyards and historical homes. From Constantia Nek and the Tokai Forest a myriad of hiking trails traverse through lush indigenous forests and up the slopes of Table Mountain.
Home of Groot Constantia, the first wine estate in South Africa, the Constantia Valley boasts the oldest wine route in the country with five estates. A host of excellent restaurants, sophisticated shopping malls and exclusive homes of Cape Dutch and Victorian architecture make the beautiful Constantia Valley a rare gem to explore in the heart of Cape Town South.
