Updated Saturday, 21 January 2017

Hi, I’m Anna Marie Pienaar from Menlo Park, Pretoria Accommodation.

MENLO PARK IS BEST KNOWN FOR being very centrally located to Shopping Centres and the University of Pretoria and the Pretoria Country Golf Club.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the Pretoria Country club, because of the beautiful gardens.

THE BEST PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT during October when the Jakarandas are blooming.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO go swimming, play tennis or play golf.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO visit the nice shopping Centres like Menlyn and Brooklyn.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS from September to April, BECAUSE then you have the best weather in the world.  Nice summer days without any wind.

MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS Delicious in 13th Street, Menlo Park.

FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST Cynthea’s in 22nd Street, Menlo Park.
