Interesting Places and Tourist Attractions in Annlin Suburb

The suburb is surrounded by nature and great landscapes. It sits below the Magaliesberg Mountains and close to the nature reserves like Wonderboom and Onderstepoort and a variety of museums and other Pretoria attractions. The easy access to the highways like N1 makes it easy for one to drive anywhere. Kolonade shopping mall is a walking distance away, whilst Brooklyn mall and Menlyn Pak are a less that 20 minutes drive. You will find everything you need from the Pretoria North shopping complexes but if you prefer somewhere else, you will have to drive as there is not much convenient public transport.

The country feel in some part of the suburb can inspire one to work from home and the rich culture cal lead entrepreneurs to turn their homes into Guesthouses. For the farmers, one can grow almost any fruit in the rich and matured soil of Annlin and north of Pretoria. From mangoes, olives, pears, peaches, prickly pears, citrus to a variety of vegetables and herbs.

Note from the Author
I lived in the neighbourhood. My huge stand had a lovely orchard at the back with a second house which brought extra income. Our house was an extension of a three roomed house that was built in the early 1900s with thick walls. The original plan is a plain and simple drawing without a bathroom. From that piece of paper I imagined how the first family lived in the dwelling without any form of security.

Actually, the property still has minimal security. Some fencing and no cameras nor electric fencing. I really miss the simplicity of life, and a country feel so close to the city. Annlin and surrounding areas are truly peaceful and quite homely. What I miss the most is the relatively low crime rate. At least I never heard of an incidence in our neighourhood.
