More info about Muckleneuk
Another of Pretoria’s established and leafy suburbs, Muckleneuk is surrounded by university campuses and picturesque parks. The suburb is close to Pretoria CBD, the Loftus Versfeld rugby stadium and many of the city’s attractions. Also nearby are three hospitals.
Muckleneuk was laid out in the late 1880s and named after a pioneer Scotsman’s home estate. It’s said that the word is a Scottish colloquialism for a large nook. Fine examples of Victorian architecture are still present in the suburb, some designed by Herbert Baker who went on to design the magnificent Union Buildings. A number of these stately homes are occupied by embassies.
This hilly, character-rich suburb is popular with academics, young professionals and embassy staff.
South Africa’s largest open distance education university UNISA has a campus in Muckleneuk, a prominent landmark along Pretoria’s skyline.

About Self Catering
Self Catering places can be found from rural to urban areas and can vary in what they offer. They allow plenty freedom and is a great inexpensive way to spend your holiday. They have been widely classified as a “Home away from home”. This is a good option for guests who don’t mind cooking their own food, and are looking for a more independent and flexible form of accommodation. For budget and large families, we would recommend self-catering for a more personalised experience.
