Gauteng DestinationsOlifantsfontein, Northern Gauteng

Johannesburg and Pretoria are the epicentres of the small province of Gauteng. The size of this province should not belie its important place on the South African and international maps, though, as Gauteng remains the country’s busiest and wealthiest province and the springboard from which millions of tourists have launched their African adventure.

Olifantsfontein is a small, quiet town that is perched between Kempton Park and Pretoria. It is largely industrial, but the residential areas enjoy peace and quiet, despite being so close to the major highways and the hubs of industry.

One of its main advantages in terms of tourist accommodation is its close proximity to the beautiful Rietvlei Nature Reserve, which is home to a host of antelope (including the black wildebeest and the blesbok), as well as to hyenas, black-backed jackals, aardwolwe, and the banded mongoose.

With this convenient locale, Olifantsfontein is in prime position for locals and visitors to Johannesburg and South Africa. The OR Tambo International Airport is only 20 kilometres away, and the world-renowned Gautrain a convenient 17 kilometres from this area.

Other nearby attractions (20 kilometres away or less) include the Glen Austin Bird Sanctuary, Smuts House Museum, Centurion Art Gallery, Kyalami Race Circuit, and the Centurion Mall.
