Updated Wednesday, 26 December 2018

Hi, I’m Muzi Mohale from Roodepoort in Gauteng. Through my love for travelling and the internet I blog about the travel and tourism industry in South Africa

ROODEPOORT IS BEST KNOWN FOR the discovery of Gold in 1884.

Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT Walter Sisulu Botanical Garden.

THE BEST golf PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN at Ruimsig Country Club.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT Poortview.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO visit Hillfox Flea Market.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO shop at Clearwater Mall.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS Summer because of all the outdoor activities available in the area.

FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST The Keg in Horizon Village.

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS The Cattle Baron. Try the Large Portion of Pork Spare Ribs!

BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM Trumps!

Gauteng Hiking

MY FAVOURITE township SPOT IS Shimi’s Pub in Kagiso.

FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY the Silver Star Casino.

IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO West Gate Mall.

ROODEPOORT’S BEST KEPT SECRET IS The Kloofendal Nature Reserve.

MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS a picnic at Florida Lake.

A notable event on 30 December 1985 – Winnie Mandela was arrested for having contravened a banning order that prohibited her from being in the magisterial district of Johannesburg and Roodepoort.

I Love ROODEPOORT BECAUSE it is its a small Afrikaans town, now integrating all races!
