More info about Cape Town City Bowl
Whilst there are no specific boundaries, the area known as the City Bowl in Cape Town is defined by Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and Signal Hill to form a natural amphitheatre. The City Bowl encompasses the business district, harbour and several residential areas. It’s the pulsating heart of Cape Town city.
The City Bowl sits on an ancient granite base surrounded by sandstone mountains. In the 1950s, steps were taken to reclaim land from the sea to build the Foreshore area and thereby extend the harbour further out to sea. This area is largely commercial with residential areas located closer to the mountain slopes.
