Chocolate Avenue at Woodlands Estate It was my birthday a few days ago – four to be more precise. One must add that it was not particularly eventful, falling in the middle of a rather busy work and school week. Im not sure that even if I had the time I would have had been capable of mustering the necessary energy to go out and act as though I was tremendously excited to be approaching thirty years old. Please understand, I do not mean to affront those of you reading this that are beyond this universally recognized landmark, but I am certain that you all understand rather intimately that this doubled edged sword of wisdom and approaching caducity can be a rather precarious event to contend with! If I lived in one the lavish homes for sale in Woodlands Estate, things might have been somewhat different on my birthday, albeit moderately.

Natural Wonders at Woodlands Nkwe resort – but a moment’s drive from properties within Woodlands, this timeless (and when I say timeless, I mean it looks like the area has been there since the start of time itself, such is the ancient grandeur that the park exudes to all that are privileged enough to grace their eyes with its presence) testament to nature at its most raw, its most beautiful, presents the perfect opportunity in escaping the seemingly inescapable woes of the world through experiences in far distant lands, yet somehow still within walking distance of the nearest arterial road within the eastern suburbs of the capital city – it is quite strange, wonderfully so, that such a gem could find growth, life, within the hub-bub of the capital city, the rate of expansion overtaking everything in its path – yet, somehow, here it is, a hidden marvel that invites all to taste of its invigorating waters and breathe of its life giving air. Included within the proximity of the natural amenities of Woodlands Estate, Nkwe is within grasping distance to all those who would spend a few moments in catching their breadth, steadying their mind and easing their soul, before continuing on with the trek that sees us as part of popular urban culture and society.

Nightlife at Woodlands One would think that I’d be absolutely heartbroken about being asked to leave this Eden of the night, what with its fancy music, fancy clientele, their fancy patter while doing fancy things to the dancefloor (apparently I’ve run out of adjectives, give me a moment). I wasn’t. The gorgeous thing, the absolutely magnificent solution to the untimely exit (ah okay I’ve managed to re-open my vault of words once more) is that right next door to the paradise of TY’s lay the Utopia of Cubana. Literally right. Next Door – funny, I used that same phrase to describe the amenities of Woodlands when pushing their repertoire in a previous article. Before they found out that I had a knack for losing my head and my shirt, I made sure I was within those walls and on that floor, enjoying the Caribbean flavour that seemed to spill from every light and every flaming lamp, every colourful drink and every fire breathers mouth – although in their case, it wasn’t so much “spilled” as it was setting the air alight in a glorious display of flame handling virtuosity – one could almost compare their control to that of Beethoven’s fingers on a keyboard…okay no you couldn’t, the keyboard wasn’t on fire. My point is, that should you ever find yourself needing a change of scenery, Menlyn Square provides just that in the multitude of options at your disposal.

Amenities at Woodlands Just as nature interacts with humanity to give those living within the properties of Woodlands Estate a quality of life of the highest standard, so does Woodlands, as an estate, a living, breathing organism pulsing with life, do the same with the surrounding area in giving residents an excellent proximity to any and everything their hearts desire, through excellent access to some of the best shopping malls the continent has ever seen. Take Menlyn Retail for example – soon to be very different from the mall that you and I grew up around, for their expansion program, already underway, sees the arrival of scores of new stores of both local and international recognition. This is in addition to the already existing shopping opportunities made available by the hundreds of stores open for business all year round, helping to make Menlyn one of the largest malls in terms of the number of shops within one place, on the African continent.

Security at Woodlands Safety – It’s a word we throw around these days without any real thought as to what it actually captures in how we feel. For instance, when I hear the word “safety”, I immediately think of my mother yelling at me to get off the roof – I mean come on, I was 6 years old, what was so dangerous about being the roof (apparently everything)? Or looking both ways when I cross the street.

Schools Near Woodlands I myself am not a parent, but I certainly understand the difficulty behind choosing an academic setting into which to place a growing mind – one that certainly would have one of the most influential and profound impacts on said minds beliefs, mantras, philosophies and actions. In an attempt to assist with the process of selection, I've done a little research (slightly untrue, I did a lot of research). Found below are some of those schools I feel would give any child a springboard start, head and shoulders above the rest, in creating a life worth living.
