Oranjezicht Accommodation

Oranjezicht, meaning ‘Orange View’, was established by a German entrepreneur, Nicolas Laubscher in 1704. Laubscher bought the property on the slopes of Table Mountain and was immediately taken by the vistas. ‘Oranjezicht’ refers to direct views of the orange bastions of the Castle of Good Hope. For over two centuries the suburb functioned as a farm, supplying residents with fresh produce. It was bulldozed in the late 1960’s to make way for a bowling green and was later converted into the Oranjezicht City Farm in 2013.

Today, remnants of the defunct farm still stand, where historical buildings, as well as an old slave bell, can be visited by tourists and locals alike. The Molteno Dam, which used to source the town’s water supply from the natural springs of Table Mountain, is found at the heart of Oranjezicht. Today, it is frequented by runners and walkers who like to walk around the perimeters of the dam.

Oranjezicht is located on the foothills of Table Mountain, lying adjacent to the neighbouring suburb of Vredehoek. Many young corporates and students live in the area because it is in close proximity (a short five-minute drive) to the central business district and the My City Bus stations – a convenient, safe and reliable mode of public transport.

Apartments and homes in the suburbs are warm, spacious and provide wraparound vistas of Table Mountain and the Foreshore. For this reason, a stay in Oranjezicht is pleasant and visitors are spoilt for choice with many guest houses available in the area.

Kloof Street, known for its vibey restaurant and café culture, is within walking distance of Oranjezicht. However, if you do go by foot prepare yourself for the steep ascent on your return. Situated on the bottom of Kloof Street is the old, independent cinema theatre, the Labia. A visit here is certainly a novel one. This Italian Embassy Ballroom turned theatre is an alternative movie watching experience for the discerning viewer with its screenings of foreign, classic and arty films.

If you’ve got dogs that need their daily dose of exercise, De Waal Park is welcoming of all family members (furry, four-legged ones included). This park can be found in the middle of the suburb, and is a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Families can enjoy Sunday picnics under the shade of trees, children can run amok in the designated play area and dogs can splash around in the Victorian water feature on hot, summer days.

The Oranjezicht City Farm is a community-driven, non-profit initiative dedicated to providing locals with healthy, organic wares. While their weekly fetes have been moved further afield, to Granger Bay, Oranjezicht residents still frequent the market to stock up of fruit, vegetables and free-range eggs.

Oranjezicht
I was born in Cape Town and lived in the Peninsula and the northern suburbs for 35 years but never really knew Oranjezicht and the surrounding area. To have lived in Oranjezicht for a couple of days, so close to Table Mountain, and to experience just part of the Platteklip Gorge Hike, was a great adventure for a 79 year young man! The Farmers' market on Saturday morning was another lovely outing.
