Northern Suburbs Accommodation

There is a distinct difference between the northern and southern suburbs of Cape Town, and, as with many a city divided by a river or other landmark, Cape Town has an imaginary line the locals call ‘the boerewors curtain’. The two are separated by the huge conglomerate called ‘Century City’ that serves as a shopping mecca for most of Cape Town, but which the northern suburbs regard as theirs - although it’s actually north of the N1 that serves as the official border.

Ask any resident of Cape Town and the major distinction between the northern and southern suburbs will be language. English-speaking people live in the south and Afrikaans-speaking people live in the north - but this is a sweeping generalisation and doesn’t take into account the obvious exceptions to the rule. Suffice it to say that the newspaper of choice in the northern suburbs is ‘Die Burger’, whilst ‘The Cape Argus’ serves the southern suburbs.

The northern suburbs are officially part of the City of Tygerberg, formed from the union of the municipalities of Bellville, Durbanville, Goodwood and Parow. These suburbs have experienced an enormous property growth in recent years, not least because of their access to Cape Town International Airport, Grand West Casino and a number of wine routes, including the Durbanville Wine Valley.
