Glenferness, Midrand

Gauteng may be South Africa's smallest province, but it is certainly its busiest, thanks to its being a business epicentre and the home of Johannesburg and the OR Tambo International Airport. As such, this area welcomes millions of international visitors every year; folk that are visiting South Africa and looking for the ultimate in African beauty and hospitality.

Glenferness is one of Johannesburg's suburbs and provides excellent access to the popular areas of Midrand and Pretoria, connecting them to the heart of the Johannesburg CBD. Access to the N1, N3, and M1 motorways is made easy, as is getting to the shopping and business hotspots of Sandton and Rivonia. These areas are bursting at the seams with excellent restaurants, boutiques, supermarkets, theatres, office blocks and ample entertainment.

The homes here include massive estates that enjoy enormous properties that were once farms. These are stunning retreats right in the heart of one of Africa’s busiest and most cosmopolitan cities. The Equestrian Park is situated close to Glenferness and visitors will, no doubt, love seeing the elegant Lipizzaners as they perform with grace and elegance.

Glenferness is a great base from which to experience some of the tourist attractions around and just outside Johannesburg. The rugged beauty of the Magaliesberg Mountain Range is close to perfect and is a favourite amongst rock climbers, hikers, birders and explorers. These mountains are only 30 minutes’ drive from Glenferness, making them a convenient option for a day outdoors. Hartbeespoort Dam and the prehistorically-precious Cradle of Humankind are also relatively nearby and make for very exciting excursions out of the heart of Johannesburg. Pretoria is a 30-minute drive away.
