Krugersdorp is situated close to Johannesburg and offers property and real estate investors a wide range of excellent properties. These property types include large houses, small homes, apartments, security villages, retirement complexes, cluster developments and guest houses.
Krugersdorp is named after President Paul Kruger. This small town west of Johannesburg was founded in 1887 on Paardekraal farm as an administrative centre for the public gold diggings proclaimed in the area. Two years later the government granted 800 Pounds for trees to be planted in the municipality and today the town still has many shady trees and attractive parks, despite being a hub for local industry.
Bringing Krugersdorp global recognition are the nearby fossil hominid sites of Sterkfontein, Swartkrans and Kromdraai, which have recently been proclaimed a World Heritage Site.
Apart from the fossils of extinct animals and birds found in these sites, a discovery was made in 1947 which made front page news. This was the skull of a hominid of about 2 million years old which was hailed as the "missing link" between man and ape. It is known as Mrs Ples (short for Plesianthropus transvaalensis).
