Rondebosch at a glance


At the base of the iconic Devil's Peak lies Rondebosch, one of the Southern Suburbs offering beautifully leafy surrounds, impeccable centrality, a vast breadth of property options and ease of access to many of the province's best educational facilities.

Part of the suburbs charm lies not only in its convenience but in its energetic combination of past and present: gracious older homes and smaller apartments, the concentration of student inhabitants and the families of the many scholars in the area, national monuments and modern conveniences. The areas' inhabitants are well served by Rondebosch Common, 100 acres of land offering locals various recreational options, including a local parkrun Other local landmarks include the Baxter Theatre, the renowned Silwood School of Cookery and Genadendal, the presidential residence.

The main campus of the University of Cape Town overlooks the suburb from the north and its proximity makes it enormously popular with tertiary students. Many of the country's best regarded primary and secondary schools are also located within the area: Bishops Diocesan College, Rondebosch Boys' prep and high schools, St Joseph's Marist College, Westerford High School and Rustenburg Girls' High School with Rustenburg Girls' Junior School Neighbouring suburbs offer still more options. The suburb's neighbours include Newlands and Claremont to the south and Rondebosch is bordered on the West by the M3 freeway, and to East by the M5 freeway. This enviable access to major arteries is a major boon.

Rondebosch homes various notable medical facilities: The Red Cross Childrens' Hospital, Groote Schuur Hospital as well as its own private facilities in the form of The Rondebosch Medical Centre offering a variety of specialist health care services.

Rondebosch contains a number of smaller shopping malls such as Riverside Mall, Fountain Centre and Silwood Centre. The suburb is conveniently located to Cavendish Square , a stylish shopping destination in neighbouring Claremont.

Southern Suburb stalwart Al's Place is found in Rondebosch. As is Hussar Grill Rondebosch which recently won a trip advisor Certificate of Excellence as well as a Top Restaurant award.

Commonground Cafe, bordering the Common offers great food, dramatic views of Devil's Peak and as the proceeds to go an NPO assisting the city's vulnerable, a visit can feed more than your own stomach.
