More info about Waterkloof

Situated on the eastern side of Pretoria, Waterkloof is a suburb of great beauty and history. Afrikaans for water ravine, Waterkloof started out as a farm back in the 19th century but later developed to become one of the most sought after, high class residential areas in South Africa. Looking back at the Apartheid regime, Waterkloof was associated with the Afrikaner elite. Majority of the high ranking officials of the Apartheid Government of the time built their majestic homes here. Today, Waterkloof still boasts some of the most amazing residential properties, for example the magnificent hill top homes on Edward and Victoria Streets that overlook the City Center and the Union Building. For this reason, a number of ambassadorial and celebrity homes are located within the suburb. True to its origin, Waterkloof maintains its British Empire feel as many of its streets are named after British royalty. Apart from being a high class residential area, Waterkloof has other attractions that make the suburb such an ideal place to visit. Various guesthouses with rich histories are located in Waterkloof, each offering various packages for visitors. It is also just a ten minute drive away from the city centre and therefore gives visitors access to all that the city centre offers. It is also home to the 18-hole wonder, the exclusive Pretoria Country Club. The Waterkloof Spruit that runs through the golf course gives it much splendor. The Waterkloof Airbase is located on the Southern side of the suburb while the Loftus Sports Stadium is just a few meters away. Finally, to the West lies the Fountain Valley Recreation Area. Waterkloof is an ideal and scenic South African Experience that should be enjoyed by all.
