Upper Highway

Less than 30 kilometres west of Durban, Kloof was the region of choice in the late 19th Century for captains of commerce, industry and government, who built far from the humidity of the City. Many of the homes were originally farmlands and over the years, as demand for homes in the area increased, these farmlands were subdivided with stands averaging between a minimum of two acres (in some areas) and one half acres and an interesting blend of new and old architecture emerged. The lush and heavily wooded vegetation, which is a unique characteristic of the Upper Highway area, is still preserved today. The Upper Highway encompasses about 10 little suburbs stretching from...

Lephalale

You'd be forgiven for not knowing where Lephalale is. Until recently, this unassuming town has stayed under the radar. In 2002, the name was changed from Ellisras to Lephalale. The latter name is taken from the Phalala River, which is derived from the Tswana verb “to flow” or “one which overflows”. The town is located west of Polokwane, and north of Rustenberg. It is not far from the South African border with Botswana however, it is far from the large cities. What makes Lephalale special is the growth that is expected to unfold over the next 25 years. It is believed by locals that the town is the future of power generation in South...

Ermelo

Situated in the Grass and Wetlands region of the Mpumalanga province lies the town of Ermelo. Origin/meaning : Ermelo was founded in 1880, and was named by its first resident clergyman, Rev Frans Lion-Cachet, after Ermelo in the Netherlands.

Cape Town

Cape Town’s City Bowl is amazingly aptly named. The heart of Cape Town is enfolded between the harbour and the mountain, virtually in the shape of a bowl. The City Bowl holds some of the most interesting and historically significant neighbourhoods and the likes of the Bo Kaap, Oranjezicht, Tamboerskloof and Gardens provide hours of easy meanderings, restaurants and historical sights. The City Centre lies encircled by these Suburbs that, the closer one gets to the mountain, the steeper they become, so that Higgovale and Oranjezicht lie right up on the slopes of Table Mountain.
