Newlands is one of the most popular residential areas in Cape Town and is ideal for a holiday trip. Thanks to its good location in the south of the metropolis, you will easily discover Cape Town and its surroundings. The city centre and the beaches of St James can be reached in 20 minutes. Cape Town’s southern suburbs include Newlands, Claremont, Bishopscourt and Constantia, South Africa’s oldest wine-growing region.
Governor Simon van der Stel brought the wine business to Constantia by planting some wine forests. Good Constantia is one of the most magnificent wineries in South Africa. Other wineries in the area are Klein Constantia, Buitenverwachting and Steenberg.
The Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden was established on 1 July 1913 to preserve the unique biodiversity of the region. This principle is still maintained today by showing only native plants. It lies on the eastern slope of Table Mountain and is considered one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. At 36 hectares, it is the largest of 8 National Botanical Gardens run by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI). In the summer months, concerts are performed outdoors – bring your picnic basket and spend a wonderful day in the countryside!
The stadium in Newlands is the venue for the most important cricket and rugby games – watch the national sport of South Africa live! In addition, there are several golf courses in Newlands.
Constantia is located on the Cape Peninsula and is the only South African wine area that is located in a town. You can reach Constantia within a 20-minute drive from the city centre. Table Mountain is just beyond Constantia and there are many wild plants, flag and fynbos growing there.
The early wine makers in Constantia made dessert wine in the 18th and 19th centuries, found in the cellars of Napoleon, Frederick the Great and the Prussian king. Constantia is well known for its winemaking but also for the beautiful location with Table Mountain in the background. The location is always a sea breeze from False Bay to Constantia and shadow in the afternoon by Table Mountain. All five wine cellars, Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia, Steenberg Estate and Buitenverwachting offer something special for their visitors.
