Things to do

Synonymous with the world of rugby and cricket, Newlands is known as Cape Town’s ‘green’ suburb – located against the eastern slopes of Table Mountain and only 15 minutes away from the city centre.

There is a special ambience on the Newlands side of the mountain. Panorama Guest House is situated in a suburb set amongst century-old Oaks and offers direct access to the Table Mountain Reserve. Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden and Rhodes Memorial are within easy walking distance from the guest house.
