The Roodepoort region is one of the most attractive residential areas in Johannesburg, offering charming suburbs amid rolling hills, with superb views of the city to the east, and the Magaliesburg to the west. There are plenty of open spaces, golf courses and entertainment areas, as well as what many consider the city’s finest park, the Walther Sisulu Botanical Gardens.
