Glenferness is a spacious suburb in Midrand, just north of Johannesburg on the N1 freeway. The suburb is unique in Gauteng's high-density cities for having exceptionally large properties. It is a favourite among many travellers for the sense of tranquillity provided by space, as well as its close proximity to both Johannesburg and Pretoria.
Thanks to excellent transport links, Glenferness is no more than half an hour from Pretoria and even less time to Johannesburg's business hub, Sandton. Travelling businesspeople and leisure travellers alike will be more than satisfied with the ease with which one can access shopping centres, the business and financial districts as well as the many tourist attractions offered by Sandton.
Despite its proximity to the hubbub though, Glenferness is an exceptionally peaceful area. It is characterised by large small holdings - many of which have horses grazing in the fields - which give the place a rural air. Unlike in the centre, traffic is minimal and once you get to your accommodation, you are unlikely to be disturbed by anything besides birds chirping and horses grazing. Furthermore, the area is very green and most of the streets are lined with trees. It is hard not to be relaxed when staying in Glenferness.
Glenferness is situated in the eastern part of Midrand and one of its notable neighbours is Kyalami. This is the place where horse-lovers and outdoor fiends will feel right at home, and it's just a 2 minute drive from Glenferness. For starters the South African Lipizzaners call Kyalami home, and regular dressage shows are put on for visitors. The Kyalami Country Club is also worth visiting for those with an interest in golf, tennis or bowls.
