These include the Wonderboom Nature Reserve, Hartbeespoort Dam and the Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre, all well-known getaways for residents seeking a break. There are also numerous wedding, party and functions venues in the area. This is a feature in most Pretoria North suburbs, such as Amandasig,Dorandia and Karenpark. It is thanks to the affordability aspect, which sees investors picking up huge stands at relatively lower rates.
