Krugersdorp

With a population of more than 350,000, Krugersdorp is located close to Johannesburg and offers property and real estate investors a wide range of excellent properties. The property types you’ll find here include large and small homes, apartments, retirement villages, cluster home developments, town houses and industrial property. Krugersdorp, which was founded in 1887 and named after President Paul Kruger, is considered the industrial hub of western Gauteng. Mining in the region began when gold was discovered on the farm Paardekraal, and gold, manganese, iron and lime are now mined in the surrounding areas.

Today the town has some attractive residential property areas, especially those seated on the north facing ridges. Look for property in Krugersdorp North, Rant-en-dal, Noordheuwel, Monument and in Dan Pienaarville. Krugersdorp has all the benefits of a city. Services and other facilities are first-rate, with a modern business centre, shopping malls and many small shops. The town is home to some of the best high schools in the region.

Krugersdorp played a major part in the Anglo-Boer Wars, with men from the town fighting on both sides. There was once a concentration camp in the town that housed 6,000 women and children in tents. The Krugersdorp Museum displays a number of exhibits that portray life in the area in the early settler days.

When considering property in the area, you’ll find that leisure options in and around the town are excellent. Just to the west of the town lies the Krugersdorp Nature Reserve, a 1,400 hectare game reserve with a good selection of wild life including lion, buffalo, hippo, zebra, giraffe and a wide selection of antelope. Within the boundaries of the reserve is an aviary with the largest selection of indigenous birds in Africa. Just outside town you’ll find the Sterkfontein Caves, home to the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site. Golfers are well catered for with the Krugersdorp Country Club central to good property suburbs.
