Lifestyle

    With wide open spaces and views of the Magaliesberg Mountain Range, Westlake Country and Safari Estate is a beautiful, peaceful environment in which to live.

    Uniquely situated on the southern side of the Hartbeespoort Dam, Westlake is easily accessible from many local areas and neighbouring estates.
    The surrounding areas offer a host of activities for both locals and visitors.

    • Westlake Country and Safari Estate is nestled alongside the southern shores of Hartbeespoort Dam with scenic views of the Magaliesberg Mountain Range. More than half the estate is communal property, with many inland dams and an abundance of tree and grass varieties. These support a variety of water birds and fish. We have many springbok, impala, nyala, gemsbok, blesbok, red hartebeest, black wildebeest and duiker. They roam freely through the communal property, and can often be seen wandering between the houses. Westlake provides the perfect environment for them as they produce many offspring each year.
    • The lovely homes, open gardens, and spacious communal property add to the peaceful feeling and country ambiance of Westlake. Westlake's harbour area has jetties, a slipway and provides launching facilities. There is a 9-hole mashie course, tennis courts, squash courts, swimming pool, lovely walks and many other activities to enhance living at Westlake. Residents enjoy the peace of mind provided by our state-of-the-art security systems and 24/7 patrols, including a full access control system, boomed entrance, electrified perimeter fence, monitoring systems and patrol vehicles.

    History

    Westlake Country and Safari Estate was originally part of the farm "Groot Plaas". The farm was owned by two brothers (Pretorius) which resulted in the name "Broederstroom". The brothers had many children and the original farm was divided amongst the descendants and renamed.

    One of the sub-divided farms on the Western side of Groot Plaas was sold to 1820 settler William Scrooby. Part of that farm has now become Westlake.

    Conservation

    Westlake Country and Safari Estate has set aside 80 hectares of land that is to remain a natural grass area where Game can be conserved.
    Grasses are divided into 3 main groups: Sweetveld, Sourveld and Mixed Veld. Westlake falls into the Sourveld region which means that the grass is palatable and high in nutritive value, during the growing season.

    Westlake Country and Safari Estate has a policy of growing indigenous plants and effort is made to remove alien invaders.
    Our inland dams play host to different species of waders and waterfowl. Close proximity to the main dam also gives rise to an abundance of other species.
