This is an affluent area of Cape Town in the Southern Suburbs. It is nestled mostly on the north side of Wynberg Hill to the west of which is Constantia. To the north is Fernwood (Newlands), to the east is Claremont, and to the south Wynberg. It still is characterised by large properties with potential for botanical remnants, though these are rapidly diminishing due to continuing development. There are also many aliens in the area.
