Famous for being the home of Oscar winning actress, Charlize Theron, the suburb of Benoni lies in the eastern part of Gauteng’s Witwatersrand (known as the East Rand), neighboured by Boksburg, Kempton Park and Brakpan. Once a small mining town, its face was transformed in 1906 with landscaping and the introduction of various lakes and dams to channel mine water. Many of these reservoirs remain and today, add even more appeal to Benoni property rentals and houses for sale.
