Kraaifontein is a suburb of Cape Town, in the Western Cape province of South Africa.

It is located in the city's northern suburbs and flanks the N1 Highway towards Paarl and Worcester to the north and south. It comprises several residential areas namely Windsor Park, Scottsville, Peerless Park, Eikendal, Belmont Park, Bonny Brook and Uitzicht.

Kraaifontein, encompassing the areas of Scottsdene, Wallacedene and Bloekombos, was once a separate municipality before the restructuring of all South African municipalities during the late 90's. These areas, however, are listed as separate suburbs by the City of Cape Town for planning and statistical purposes.[2]

Forming part of the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality, it is located in its Subcouncil 2 Area named Bergdal.[3]
