One of the first suburbs established after the formation of Pretoria city, Waterkloof is a plush, affluent area with grand homes set on large landscaped properties, the wide sidewalks lined with established jacaranda trees. The exclusive hilltop estates, several of which are owned by foreign embassies, have magnificent views of the city and surrounding areas.
Waterkloof is a purely residential area with a single school, a few small strip malls for last minute shopping, corner coffee shops to catch up with the neighbours, and the Pretoria Country Club on the eastern end of the suburb.
The suburb is within a short driving distance of the University of Pretoria, the city centre and nature reserves. For a luxurious stay in South Africa’s administrative capital, Waterkloof is undoubtedly the suburb of choice.
