History of Randjesfontein
Randjesfontein was chosen from the whole of the Transvaal by a Voortrekker family who crossed the Vaal River in 1836
The farm has been passed down from father to son for generations. It has seen the Highveld around it give birth to two major cities, and yet to this very day, it has remained exquisitely unspoilt.
It was with a sad heart that the family finally realised that due to the encroaching cities, their inheritance had to be shared with others. They agreed to a low density development of Country Estates with equestrian activities for a select few which would retain the spirit of Randjesfontein with dignity without it being desecrated by thousands of postage stamp stands.
We are proud to offer you and your family a share in this South African heritage.
“The spirit of Randjesfontein is the spirit of South Africa”.
