Area description

Bishopscourt is a small upmarket suburb located 20 minutes or so away from the coast in the residential "southern suburbs" of Cape Town and consisting of no more than a few hundred properties in all. The former Cape Town Home of Nelson Mandela, as well as many foreign Embassies and other dignitaries Bishopscourt is often referred to as one of the most exclusive suburbs in South Africa.

Bishopscourt is a lush and leafy neighbourhood whose properties often have large private gardens in which to relax and escape the heat of the day, or just to relax and unwind in after a hard day's sightseeing. The world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are located in Bishopscourt and are a highlight for any visitor to Cape Town, whether to explore some of the 528 hectares of beautiful gardens or relax with a picnic and enjoy one of the famed Sunday evening concerts in the park, with the magical backdrop of Table Mountain behind.

Whilst a quiet residential area Bishopcourt is very conveniently located close to the major freeways connecting Cape Town with the Cape Peninsula and it's easy to access all of Cape Town's many attractions from this very exclusive and relaxing base.
