Area info:

Akasia is a complex of suburbs in the north of Pretoria, part of the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality. The area surrounding Akasia is largely semi-rural and Akasia itself is built on former agricultural holdings.

The first suburb to be built in Akasia is The Orchards. The Orchards was established as a residential township in 1904 and an old Dutch-Reformed church was in the center of the neighborhood. As the City of Pretoria grew in light of industrial expansion in the 1960s more houses were constructed in the northern semi-rural holdings today known as Akasia. The turning point in the urban development of Akasia was the establishment of the Roslyn industrial complex in the early 1970s. Roslyn became a significant industrial complex, housing large industrial corporations such as Nampac (c), BMW, South African Breweries and Nissan`. With the growth of the manufacturing complex came a need for a large skilled and semi-skilled workforce nearby and by the late 1970s the small agricultural holdings in the area were being purchased and transformed into residential offerings with tree lined streets and green parks.

With a success in the sale of housing in The Orchards, there was a plan to build more similar suburban style houses for the large population of artisans and technicians. Soon suburbs such as Karenpark, Amandasig, Theresapark, Ninapark, Clarina, Hesteapark, Flourana, and Chantelle were built.

Key features include the Wonder Park Shopping Centre, the Winternest train station and drivers testing station. The area is home to two world class golf courses: the Hillside Golf Course in Nina Park and the Thornbrook Golf Estate in Theresapark.

The area is not known for having a busy nightlife as its inhabitants are largely conservative families but over the years, the existence of News Cafe Karen park, Mogomotsi Country lodge next the Mabopane Highway and the Gaabo Motho party Lodge in Amandasig have added a vibrant feel to the area's nightlife.

Small Somalian shops and Congolese hairdressers have given the largely culturally monogamous area a new traditional dynamic. The relationship between the African migrants and local South Africans in the Akasia area is relatively good as the population in Akasia is well educated and levels of unemployment are low.


There are well-established schools with large sports grounds in the area as well as an adequate selection of nursery and pre-primary schools. The University of Pretoria is a short drive away and Tshwane University of Technology (former Pretoria Technikon) is a neighbour. Medunsa and Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute are only a stone’s throw away.

Schools such as;
Hoërskool Akasia,
Hoërskool Gert-Marits,
Laerskool Theresapark,
Laerskool Akasia,
Amandasig secondary school and Charlton Force college.
