Tokai is a suburb in the Constantia valley, surrounded by majestic mountains, south of Cape Town city. It’s best known for the forest that carpets the slopes of the Constantiaberg Mountain at the western end of the suburb.
The forest is a hive of activity on most days ,with walkers enjoying the peace and quiet, hikers climbing the trails and mountain bikers attempting the tracks graded from novice to expert. The lovely arboretum was established in 1886. and planted with trees from around the world to find the best trees for repairing ships. Horse riding is popular in these parts. Baboon troops are common in the area.
The Cape Dutch style Tokai manor house built in 1796 is a national monument and currently occupied by the Table Mountain National Park admin offices.
Tokai is alongside the M3 Blue Route highway, within easy reach of the city and the coastal road through to Cape Point.
