The welcoming Witpoortjie Village is located in Roodepoort in the West Rand. The village offers a variety of functional accommodation from flats, cottages and apartments. The spacious outdoor area and colourful garden provides a lovely setting to be enjoyed all year round.
If you need a break from cooking, arrange to have lunch at the dining room and enjoy the company of the staff and residents. Some activities that you will have the opportunity to get involved with include spiritual programs, games, external day trips to the local stores and social activities to enjoy with the community and friends. The village is co-located with another Flower Foundation village called Zonneveld Village and the residents will interact and engage with the shared facilities.
Live among social activists who use their skills to uplift people in need such as the knitting team who contributed to knitting the largest hand knitted blanket which covered four rugby fields in the forms of the South African flag with spectacular results. Not only is South Africa now the holder of this Guiness World Record title but the blanket eventually aided 300 charities who each received a share of the 8774 blankets. The village hobby clubs are active in the community and are hands on when they identify a cause to rally behind. This offers a great way to volunteer your skills and time to benefit the greater community.
The village is close to a number of local attractions such as the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, Kloofendal Nature Reserve and Krugersdorp Game reserve. The area also boasts a number of retirement villages due to the scenic and tranquil surrounding so you will have the opportunity to have a wider group of friends.
