Oranjezicht (Dutch for "orange view") is an affluent suburb of Cape Town, situated high on the slopes of Table Mountain. Many of the building here are in original Victorian style architecture.

The suburb is built on the site of the old Oranjezicht farm, which used to stretch as far as the Company's Gardens and supplied the Castle of Good Hope with fresh produce. It was operated as a farm from the arrival of the first owner Peter van Breda in Cape Town in the early 18th century until over 200 years later. The Oranjezicht farmhouse was on the property directly to the east of what is now a public park and playground. Some of the buildings of the farm as well as the old slave bell are still at the location where the farm once stood.
