Bellville Accommodation Information

The suburbs in northern Cape Town on both sides of the N1 are called the "Northern Suburbs". The main ones are Plattekloof, Bellville, Parow, Tygerberg and Durbanville. Here - about 25 kilometres away from the centre of town - lives the majority of the population of Cape Town. During the week at the rush hours there is stop-and-go traffic on the N1.

The commercial centre of this region is the Tygerberg Centre on the N1, a shopping centre of an enormous size, surrounded by high office buildings.

At the moment the "Tygerberg Waterfront" is still being completed around a waterhole. It is supposed to become an alternative to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and render the Tygerberg centre more attractive for tourists.

Most of the people living in the Northern Suburbs speak Afrikaans as a first language, and so many immigrants from Johannesburg feel very much at home here. As a result the population of the Northern Suburbs is growing steadily. Particularly popular is Durbanville, a very green residential area with big properties and big houses.
