|The Tygerberg area is situated south of the historic town of Stellenbosch, tucked between the mountains and the sea. Tygerberg offers an attractive array of interests for all visitors - from the culture enthusiast to the sportsman, from the leisure traveller to the nature lover.
The challenging golf courses, numerous sports venues and the racecourse are all in peaceful rural surroundings. Beautiful open areas, like the Durbanville and Tygerberg Nature Reserves and the nationally renowned Rose Garden, all add their special flavour to Tygerber's unique tranquil character.
Tygerberg is rich in cultural and historical diversity. Art and craft centres Philani and Zenzele, in the growing town of Khayalitsha reflect the political turbulence and tokens of the apartheid past. While National Monuments like Onze Molen, one of the few original windmills in the Cape, and the old churches in Durbanville and Parow bear witness to the origin of somje of the early settlers in the Tygerberg.
