Higgovale is a relatively small but wealthy community of Cape Town. It is situated to the south of Camps Bay Drive and is bordered by Camps Bay to the west and Oranjezicht to the east. Lions Head is situated in the immediate northwest of Higgovale. This sought after suburb boasts some of the most spectacular views from its location on the slopes of Table Mountain. Most homes in Higgovale look out over the Cape Town City Centre and Table Bay, almost around to Hout Bay.
Higgovale is a green and leafy suburb, where the city noise and rush is left behind. Residents have easy access to the beauty of nature and urban living. Higgovale is also within easy reach of Kloof Street with its many bistros and quirky shops. The Atlantic Beaches are just a quick 10 minute drive away with the V&A Waterfront easily accessible from Higgovale as well.
Just beyond Molteno Reservoir, lies the Higgovale Quarry, which provides some great slab/face climbs for climbing enthusiasts. There are several established routes bolted up the cliff. The quarry closed down in 1906 and much of the granite used to construct the impressive Rhodes Memorial was obtained from the Higgovale Quarry.
An ideal place for those who love architecture and nature, Higgovale residents are close to the Table Mountain National Park that provides plenty of opportunity for hikes and walks. The area is also not as windy as other areas on the mountain. The Cape Town International airport is only 22km from Higgovale and there are several car rental agencies in the main road down from Higgovale.
