Ruimsig is found in the north west of Johannesburg, the commercial hub of Gauteng and South Africa. It is a suburb of Roodepoort which was once an independent town on Joburg's West Rand. Like the East Rand towns, settlements on the West Rand were developed after the discovery of gold in the area, and many of these settlements were independent towns for many years before Johannesburg's urban sprawl lead to them being incorporated into the municipality of Greater Johannesburg.
Ruimsig is a pleasant suburb on the outskirts of Roodepoort, with its closest neighbour to the north being the picturesque rural area of Muldersdrift. The area is about 20 kilometres from the centre of Johannesburg, meaning that a stay in Ruimsig will be generally peaceful, without the frenetic energy that comes with being in the heart of a big city.
One of the main attractions in Ruimsig is the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden. This garden is continuously voted as one of the best places to enjoy nature in Gauteng. The gardens consist of the distinct vegetation type known as Rocky Highveld grassland. This is made up of grassland, savannah, gorges and waterfalls. All in all it is very peaceful and makes a great place to visit for a day.
The famous Cradle of Humankind and the Sterkfontein Caves are also very close, since Ruimsig lies about half way between Sterkfontein and the centre of Johannesburg.
Another thing to do in Ruimsig is visit the Ruimsig Country Club which has a golf course, tennis courts, bowling greens and a bar and halfway house.
If you are looking for accommodation on the West Rand, there is no better place than the Roodepoort suburb of Ruimsig.
