Gauteng DestinationsWaterkloof, Pretoria

Waterkloof is a suburb of the city of Pretoria, South Africa. Waterkloof is named after the original farm that stood there when Pretoria was founded in the 19th Century. Meaning “Water Rivine”, Waterkloof is a leafy, established area that is home to some of the city's most expensive real estate.

Like large parts of Pretoria, Waterkloof's streets are lined with many spectacular jacaranda trees that blossom in vibrant purple hues which illuminate the entire suburb during October. During the apartheid regime in South Africa, Waterkloof was associated with the Afrikaner elite as several government officials of high rank made their home here.

Today it is a highly sought-after and upmarket area, boasting some magnificent hilltop homesteads on Edward and Victoria Streets which boast rather impressive views of the South African capital, including the renowned Union Buildings. The suburb bears the imprint of the British Empire as many of its streets are named after British royalty.

Here, one can enjoy an idyllic round of golf at the Pretoria Country Club. It is a spectacular 18-hole golf course with fantastic amenities and sure to promise an awesome golfing experience.

Several ambassadorial residences are located in the suburb. It is the home of the noted South African soprano Mimi Coertse and is also the location of the upmarket Dube-house in the Academy Award winning film Tsotsi. Entertainment facilities, world class restaurants, magnificent attractions and beauty as well as a range of activities make Waterkloof a must to experience and visit.
