Westlake Country and Safari Estate8th Jun 2022
A place where life begins
As the name suggests, Westlake Country and Safari Estate boasts wide open spaces with a rich, natural biodiversity allowing an 80-hectare conservancy of natural grasses which serves as grazing to its wildlife and over 400 bird species.
With only 250 full title, single family residential homes, Westlake Country and Safari Estate is situated at the foot of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains in the valley adjacent to the south western banks of the Hartbeespoort Dam.
This area of the North West Province is close to Gauteng making it easily accessible from Pretoria and Sandton and within easy reach of a host of local activities.
More than half the Estate is open allowing for an abundance of trees and natural grass varieties of Sweet Veld, Sour Veld and Mixed Veld. The most common grass is Sour Veld with a high nutritive value during the growing season. There is an intensive drive to allow the veld to remain unplanted with indigenous and water-wise trees.
The storm water trenches run into small inland dams throughout which are convenient watering holes for the Game and has brought an abundance of wetland birds, waders and water birds.
Not only do the Game roam amongst the homes, but a marked walking trail takes residents closer to the open grazing area of the resident antelope which includes springbok, nyala, blesbok, impala, gemsbok, red hartebeest, wildebeest and duiker.
The Equestrian Centre is fully equipped and offers outrides as well as various training modules for young and old.
The open recreational area on the banks of the Hartbeespoort Dam, offers stunning views and is a popular picnic area for residents. Nearby are the sports facilities which include harbour & jetties; tennis & squash and a 9-hole mashie golf course.
The blend of rustic landscape with Mediterranean style homes that offer spacious outdoor living areas make Westlake Country and Safari Estate a place with a relaxed ambience – a place where life begins.
