Kraaifontein Area Info
Kraaifontein, Northern Suburbs, Cape Town.
Kraaifontein caters for convenience and community.

The suburb originated in 1869 when a railway station was created there as a result of farming in the area. It was dubbed "Kraaifontein Junction" after the numerous crows found in the vicinity ("kraai" translates to "crow" in English). I think the spirit of the area has been captured in the name: "junction":
It is here where families find their homes and places of peace.

Kraaifontein offers older family homes, newer family homes as well as modern, more compact townhouses and apartments for first-time buyers or those leading fast-paced lives looking for a lock-up and go.
