Why Johannesburg South residents love their neighbourhood
When Vusi Ndlovu competed on Come Dine With Me South Africa (season five, episode 10), one thing was clear. The Glenanda resident showed the very best of Johannesburg South's hospitality. There was good food, laughs and wonderful decor. It's no surprise that Vusi took the runner-up spot. His area is a lifestyle dream with much to delight at every turn. We spoke to friendly faces around Glenanda and Glenvista to find out why.
Prenita Reddi | Entrepreneur, Travel Blogger, Author and Mrs SA Finalist 2017
"Glenanda lies in between the beautiful mountains to the south of Johannesburg and is an author's absolute dream. The Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve is less than 500 km away. It's surrounded by beauty and nature. But, it still has easy access to daily living amenities such as a top-class gym and two beautiful shopping malls. It's also close to highly rated private and public schools."
Cristofer Lanzetti | Owner of The Red Velvetier and The Cake Challenge winner 2014
"I have been calling Glenvista my home for 27 years; I love staying in the South. I think what I love most is the friendly and down-to-earth people. We have no airs and graces, we support each other and really pull together as a community when needed. We are a wonderful mix of cultures living peacefully with one another. Our suburb is beautiful from the mountains to the little brooks which run through the valleys."
Kimesha Chetty | Somatologist and Owner of Laser Beautiful

Sherilyn Onslow | Defence and Karate Instructor at Kenshikai Karate
"Glenanda has such a homie, comfortable environment. There's always someone around to lend a helping hand when you need it. The area has every convenience you need. I love eating at Foo Wah, the local Chinese Restaurant, and Little Italy."
Nomsa Sello | Owner of SasaSello Creations and Mrs SA Finalist 2017
"Living in Johannesburg South is just so convenient. It's quite central so I have access to everything I need. The area is an excellent gateway for travel. It's close to the freeway if I need to visit Pretoria. I also like shopping at The Glen Shopping Mall which is close by."
Zelda Naude | Caterer at A-Z Creative Entertainment
"I've lived in Glenvista for over 20 years. It's so peaceful and I love the wildlife. We're often visited by mongooses, chameleons, dassies and all types of birds from guinea fowls to hadedas. It's just beautiful. I also like that it's a breeze shopping in the area."
