History of Bergvliet

Bergvliet (meaning mountain streamlet) was originally a large farm owned by Simon van der Stel which formed part of the original Constantia farm. The Cape Dutch farmhouse was built in 1769. It still stands on a property on the Western side of Bergvliet. This Farm is a very beautiful place and is a national monument. It has a small natural pond called Die Oog around which a dam was built to supply the farm. A tiny bird sanctuary has been established where residents walk their dogs or go jogging. The farm was divided up and demarcated as a suburb to accommodate returning servicemen from WWII.

The postal codes for Bergvliet are 7945 (streets) and 7864 (Boxes)
