Kraaifontein at a glance
The northern suburb of Kraaifontein, although just 31 km from Cape Town, boasts a moderately
warmer and drier climate than that prevalent in the city’s southern suburbs – a great incentive to
people avoiding Cape Town’s chilly winters.
Kraaifontein offers a slower pace of life – an opportunity to take things a little easier. With its
relaxed and laidback charm, Kraaifontein is the perfect place in which to settle down if the hustle
and bustle of city life is not for you. So if you like fresh from the farm produce (but don’t like having
to drive miles to get it), consider Kraaifontein and its beautiful natural-world surroundings. And for
those Kraaifontein residents who also appreciate urban convenience, the upmarket CapeGate
Shopping Precinct is but a few kilometres away.
For families, the quality of the educational institutions in Kraaifontein is key. The Monument Park
and Eben Dönges high schools, El Shaddai Christian School, Aristea Primary School and the easily
accessible Brackenfell High School are all top-notch institutions.
As it flanks the N1 highway with Paarl to the north and Worcester to the south, calling Kraaifontein
home also ensures quick access to the mountainous beauty and award-winning winelands of
Durbanville, Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch.
