Krugersdorp is an old and well-established region of Gauteng

Pop into one of the many restaurants on offer for a delicious meal and quality time with friends and family, or immerse yourself in natural beauty and relish one of the region's scenic nature trails. The area grew after Fred Struben discovered gold at Confidence Reef, which was later declared open for public diggings. The town's history is still visible today, with historic buildings and national monuments lining the streets, including the Civic Centre building which now houses the informative museum.

Today the city's star is the magnificent Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, which houses an abundant variety of indigenous plants, supporting numerous birds and small animals. There are several striking trails to discover taking you to the top of the mountain, to a rushing waterfall or to the epic eagle's nests. You can also discover the exquisite wild flower garden or tread through the whispering trees of the sprawling forest. Learn about trees at the arboretum, spy on water birds in the hide or visit the Café Clivia for a delectable dining experience.

Florida Lake is another hot spot, with a wonderful bird sanctuary which will delight nature lovers, a putt-putt course, swimming pool and an exciting adventure park. Kloofendal Nature Reserve is also a gem not to be missed, hosting a multitude of birds, fauna and flora, along with the restored old Confidence Reef gold-mine shaft. Children will love the Roodekrans picnic areas, where a small stream meanders through lush lawns and trees and there is a playground and braai facilities.

Roodepoort is one of Gauteng's most attractive suburbs to be based in, where natural beauty abounds, with new treasures to explore every day.
