The Estate boasts a wonderful Biosphere/Eco Park area complete with a natural forest containing many species of birds, small animals, and living organisms. The Estate is close to the R21 Freeway and has direct access to major arterial roads and freeways feeding Gauteng.
The Estate is surrounded by farmland, river frontage and a nature reserve thus providing a patch of serenity on Pretoria’s rapidly developing eastern edge. The Irene Village Mall is only 4km from the Estate and other larger Pretoria Malls are in close proximity. OR Tambo International Airport is a mere 20 minute drive from the Estate on the R21 Freeway.
The Estate consists of 107 full title stands varying from 800 to 1200 m², and four sectional title complexes.
A clubhouse equipped with a swimming pool, squash court and function facilities are provided for use by residents.
The area has a typical Highveld climate with dry, frosty winters and an average of 724 mm rain during the summer rainy season. Temperatures reach as high as 34°C in the summer and as low as -2° in the winter.
The Rietvlei Nature Reserve
The Reserve is made up of open grassland with undulating hills and indigenous trees clustered in small groups. Due to previous farming practices a number of exotic trees and shrubs also grow in the Reserve.
This scenic 4000 hectare reserve is a sanctuary for rhino, buffalo, cheetah, hippo, crocodile and various antelope species. The Reserve is mainly visited as a day excursion and offers scenic picnic spots and day hikes for those who like to relax in the bountiful natural scenery of this beautiful area. Night drives are also available.
The Reserve is large enough to sustain 2000 head of game.
Safety & Security
Although security of residents cannot be guaranteed, the installation of a well maintained perimeter security system, a state of the art system to control access into the Estate, as well as the employment of a Security Contractor to carry out Estate Patrols, are some of the measures the Board has taken to achieve this. A specific portfolio is allocated to a Director to oversee all security matters.
The Rietvlei Dam
The neighbouring farms were initially acquired to ensure the protection of the Rietvlei Dam’s catchment area.
Upstream from Rietvlei dam, within the Park, is the Marais Dam which acts as a sludge dam for Rietvlei Dam and serves as a beautiful picnic spot.
Starting in 1988 a two year project raised the dam and made other improvements. The dam provides Tshwane with approximately 15% of its water.
Three types of sport take place at the Rietvlei dam namely, yachting, canoeing and angling. In order to preserve the tranquillity of the area and to ensure that animals are not disturbed, motor craft are not allowed on the dam.
