Gauteng DestinationsBashewa, Pretoria
Bashewa is a relatively small area in East Pretoria, one of the prettier and most significant towns of Gauteng Province. It is situated about an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and its international airport, OR Tambo. Bashewa itself is small, at only just above 13 square kilometres in area.
Bashewa has a distinctive look and feel, reminiscent of the real, old world farmlands of South Africa. This makes it an idyllic retreat for those wanting to escape the busy pace of the city and experience the fresh air and unadulterated sunshine of the countryside. It is situated close to the M30 Garsfontein Road, making it accessible and convenient.
Due to the abundance of natural beauty in this region, it is a wonderland for those who enjoy hiking, mountain biking and scenic walks. The birds that have made the local vegetation their home offer avian enthusiasts plenty to see during their time in Bashewa. While small and quiet, this is a rewarding place in which to base your South African experience.
