If you’re looking for a refuge away from the happenings of Pretoria, then the laidback and idyllic enclave of Rietfontein is perfect for you. Let’s face it, as the capital of South Africa, Pretoria can get incredibly crowded and noisy fairly quickly and living with that day in and day out can get tiring for even the most hardened of city dwellers. This is where Rietfontein becomes a clear choice of residence as it not only provides an escape from the daily grind, but also gives you quick and easy access to a number of other destinations that promises the very best of Mother Nature.
Rietfontein is in close proximity to the Pretoria CBD and is situated between the suburbs of Waverley and Wonderboom South. Because of its superb geographical location, residents and visitors of Rietfontein can be moments away from a plethora of shops and restaurants as well as a wide variety of entertainment outlets. But if it’s Rietfontein you’re interested in, chances are you’re after the many delights and pleasures on offer in the Great Outdoors. The Wonderboom Nature Reserve is mere moments away from the suburb and is mainly famous because of the wild fig found here known as the Wonderboom or ‘Miracle Tree’. This stunning 200 hectare park features a must-see collection of daughter trees that have grown out of the main Wonderboom – that is sadly now a shadow of its former self due to decay and age – as well as the antelope, monkeys, dassies, and birds found in the reserve.
Another natural paradise of note within close distance to Rietfontein is the Roodeplaat Nature Reserve. This reserve is split into sections with the northern parts featuring leisure activities such as canoeing and fishing, while the southern reaches are home to a magnificent bird estuary where a number of bird species make for excellent viewing opportunities.
B&B's (also knows as BnB's) vary from one another, but are each unique and offer a personalised getaway. B&Bs, as they are often called, save guests time and money by removing the worry about the first meal of the day This makes planning that much easier for your stay. This is perfect for guests who plan on doing a lot of sightseeing and expect to be out and about the entire day and night. Bed and Breakfasts are often in private homes or converted historical buildings. Meaning if you have a look through Accommodirects listings, you can find the perfect Bed and Breakfast suited to your taste.
