 The West Rand Amateur Radio Club is hosting the 2017 SARL Annual General Meeting



Bergvallei has its own character and atmosphere with its Stellenbosch-type green and white buildings surrounded by rose gardens, fountains and roman statues.

We also have affordable accommodation available, which is very convenient for guests and family coming to your wedding or function from afar.

Bergvallei is very close to the Silverstar Casino and Cradlestone Mall.  Only around 1km from both.

Ideally situated on the R28 (highway between Krugersdorp and Pretoria) in the Muldersdrift area – we are only 30 short minutes from Johannesburg and Pretoria, but with the surrounding tranquillity it could be hours away.  http://bergvallei.co.za/
