Brackenfell is a Northern Suburb of Cape Town, located in the Western Cape. It is a well-known residential suburbia that forms part of the 'Boerewors Curtain' - a coined term that refers to the invisible 'divide' between Afrikaans and English people living in the city.
Brackenfell was established in 1913, functioning as a major road crossing in Cape Town. Now, it is a residential area with beckoning views of the Oostenburg Mountain Range.
Not only do the picturesque vistas of mountains and distant vineyards attract visitors to the region, but its ideal location to the rural winelands makes it a holiday destination of choice for wine lovers. Brackenfell is a stone's throw away from The Durbanville Wine Valley Route, a ward of the Tygerberg Wine District that features a wide selection of wineries. Annually, aficionados look forward to the 'Feast of the Grape', a highly anticipated event that showcases award-winning wines from 12 of the valley's wineries. Event-goers have the opportunity to participate in activities such as grape-stomping and tutored wine tastings.
Surrounding attractions include the Bracken Nature Reserve, a quarry turned nature reserve that's home to the nearly-extinct Cape Flats Sand Fynbos and the Swartland Granite Renosterveld vegetation. The reserve harbours over 160 species of plants and flowers, which includes orchids, succulents and miscellaneous flowering bulbs. While vegetation is prevalent in the reserve, visitors can also spot a wide-spectrum of small mammals, reptiles, birds and amphibians.
If culture is what you're looking for, the Barnyard Theatre Willowbridge is some 5 km's away from Brackenfell. Being the only Barnyard Theatre in Cape Town and surrounds, avid theatre goers travel from far for rock shows, revues and musicals. Audience members will be able to relax the night away with some uproarious entertainment as well as being treated to a gourmet dinner prepared by highly-acclaimed chefs,
If you're looking for a day out in the wine valleys or some night-time entertainment, Brackenfell has a lot to offer holidaymakers. Book a weekend away at Brackenfell's various Bed n Breakfasts, or self-catering apartments.
