Mountain View, Pretoria

At first sight it's just another jacaranda clad suburb of Pretoria, but drive into Mountain View and you soon notice that those homes lucky enough to have their backs to the lower slopes of the Magaliesberg Mountains are sitting pretty in this central western part of Pretoria.

Mountain View, neighbour to Parktown Estate, Suiderberg and Daspoort Estate, lies in the crook of the R80, or John Vorster Road, as it veers north out of Roseville. It lies like a comforter up against the Magaliesberg Mountains on the other side of Paul Kruger Street from Wonderboom South, a good spot to base yourself if the centre of Pretoria is your destination - only 17 minutes' drive away.

Houses on Daphne Street are particularly fortunate, as the small greenbelt in front of them affords views out across Pretoria, and there's a pretty little Gereformeerde Church on the corner with Merwede Street. Aside from a couple of playschools, a primary school and a plant nursery, Mountain View is a perfectly ordinary neighbourhood. It even has its own Spar close to the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church.

Not far from here lies De Onderstepoort Private Nature Reserve, and the Wonderboom Nature Reserve - home to a wild fig tree that is believed to be over 1000 years old.

Other vital tourist attractions easy to reach from here include the Kruger House where Paul Kruger lived until 1901 - a few blocks from Church Square in Pretoria central, the extraordinary modern, glass South African Reserve Bank building, the State theatre, the Transvaal Museum - home to the hominid fossil known as Mrs Ples, and the Union buildings designed by Sir Herbert Baker.
