Gauteng DestinationsCraigavon, Sandton

To the west of Cedar Avenue off Witkoppen and neighbour to Cedar Lakes, Brendavere and Maroeladal, Craigavon is largely modern townhouse country on the outskirts of Sandton. This part of Johannesburg has mushroomed in the last seven years or so and where before dirt roads and open veld were commonplace, there are now modern and sought after security complexes that serve Sandton's booming business centre.

Whilst it is far from the centre of Johannesburg - many people manage to live here without visiting it, ever one can still reach the city's centre with relative ease. Most of what happens here, is now dominated by Sandton and living nearby has become something of a prerequisite.

The neighbourhood is leafy though, and despite the development, residents claim they see nagaapies (bush babies), nocturnal primates usually found in forested parts of Africa, here. Developed it might be, but the forest of trees provide enough of a canopy to encourage wild life.

This part of town functions as a natural reserve for the bush baby and if you are lucky, you may also spot the odd eagle owl at night. During the day, there are any number of birds, meaning the suburb manages to retain the benefits of living in a semi-agricultural area.

In Craigavon you are close to the major arteries of Witkoppen Road, William Nicol Drive and the N1, making getting around Johannesburg pretty effortless, give or take a traffic jam or two, but these are par for the course when you live here. Entertainment in also close at hand. You are close to Monte Casino, Broadacres and the Northgate Dome as well as close to other shopping centres like Fourways Mall and Sandton City.
