Morningside at a glance

The upmarket suburb of Morningside lies along both sides of Rivonia Road in the heart of the northern stretches of Johannesburg, yet manages to remain peaceful, quiet and relatively unruffled by the surge of Johannesburg’s nightmarish traffic.

Secure townhouses and large post-war homes make up the wealthy suburb which is favoured by those professionals working in the bustling financial district of Johannesburg. Whilst the suburb is only a hop-skip-and-jump away from the bustling commercial node dominated by high rise buildings, glass and chrome finishes, world class hotels, the Sandton Convention Centre and Sandton City’s almost 300 shops, the suburb is a quiet escape.

But Morningside is not all about high living. The Outspan Bird Sanctuary is based in the suburb on the banks of the Outspan Spruit. Home to a number of local species of birds, the sanctuary offers almost two hectares of peace and solitude to bird and nature lovers alike.

The Village Walk shopping centre, in Maude Street, offers a quieter alternative to Sandton City, and the coffee bars and restaurants a more sedate way to pass an afternoon.
