Silver Lakes is just east of Pretoria (recently renamed the City of Tshwane) in a region balanced by great expanses of nature with residential areas dotted in between. The City of Tshwane / Pretoria was founded in 1855 by Marthinus Pretorius, one of the Voortrekker leaders. The Ndebele people originally occupied the area from the 1600s, but it wasn’t until the Voortrekkers moved in that the city became established as a permanent settlement area. This capital city is famous for its Jacaranda trees, the first of which was planted in 1888 by a resident who imported the trees from Rio de Janiero.

The attraction to Silver Lakes property is in the estate itself; estate living offers ample outdoor activity such as walking, running and golfing. The nearby Tshwane offers innumerable restaurants and bars, further outdoor activities and entertainment facilities for the whole family.
