The leafy and well established suburb of Pretoria, Constantia Park, lies some 15 kilometres from the centre of Pretoria to the south-east of the city. Constantia Park is a pretty suburb with modern homes just down the road from the Menlyn Shopping Centre, the largest mall in Pretoria packed with shops, movie houses, restaurants and coffee shops - providing plenty to do and see.
Your access to the N1 from here is also good, so getting around Pretoria and through to Johannesburg is relatively easy. Both the Groenkloof Nature Reserve, a green space right in the heart of the suburbs of Pretoria with a network of hiking and mountain bike trails, and the Rietvlei Nature Reserve, one of the world’s largest urban nature reserves, are close enough to warrant an outing. You’re also fairly close to the Waterkloof golf course, the Zwartkops golf course, built around the Hennops River in Centurion, and the Wingate park golf course, making Constantia Park an obvious choice for the golf club fanatic.
Pretoria is not short of things to do. The city centre has a wealth of museums, historic buildings and monuments. There is also the zoo, a favourite amongst visitors, particularly because of the cable car, which provides a bird’s eye view of the lion enclosure and is great fun for kids. The bird park in the Nieu Muckleneuk Trim Park is a wonderful ‘green’ outing that has a playground for little ones, a wonderful lookout point to study the array of birds here and a restaurant. If you’re a bird lover, or just need a tranquil break from it all, this is one of the ‘hidden’ gems of Pretoria.
