Golden Harvest About Us
Welcome to Golden Harvest
WHO ARE WE
Established more than thirty years ago, our tranquil retirement village overlooks the Magaliesberg Mountains and the Witwatersrand Range and is minutes away from the Cradle of Humankind, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Golden Harvest is ideal for the over fifty-fives who enjoy an active retirement in a natural environment. The estate boasts a golf course, a bowling green, a croquet lawn and a swimming pool. Our herds of Blesbok and Springbok are free to roam over the vastness of the entire estate and throughout the day common wildlife sightings include mongoose, ground squirrels, cape hares and a spectacular number of birds. At night you might hear the spotted eagle owl calling or catch a glimpse of the shy grey duiker.
Despite its country location, Golden Harvest is within easy reach of various shopping malls, such as Cradlestone Mall or Key West in Krugersdorp, amongst others. On week-days our shuttle service provides daily transport to the Magaliesburg village, where there is a SuperSpar, a chemist and a post office amongst various other shops and the large minibus goes to one of the big Malls on a Tuesday.
There is also an on-site mini-supermarket which stocks a wide variety of everyday groceries and a restaurant that provides meals in the dining room or for home delivery. We are on the doorstep of the renowned Magalies Meander, a wandering array of small shops, cafés and restaurants, and within a few kilometres of the Cradle of Humankind, with its caves and permanent exhibition. A short drive away one finds the magnificent Hekpoort Valley and the famous Hartbeestpoort dam.
Security is of prime importance to Golden Harvest. There is only one entrance to the estate where all visitors are screened and signed in. The entrance is manned 24/7 and it is provided with electrical gates and cameras.
The perimeter fence is supplied with alarm sensors which are linked to the security control room and at night the perimeter is patrolled by guards and dogs. In addition each resident is supplied with a panic button which links directly to the control room.
Golden Harvest boasts a full frail care facility with specialised nurses and a 24/7 emergency facility. Post-operative care is also available, a visit to the clinic can assist you for small procedures such as changing dressings, blood pressure tests or injections.
A visiting doctor is available for morning consultations at the Clinic from Monday to Thursday. More information on the Clinic and healthcare is available here.
Our attractive, low-maintenance, face-brick houses are set in spacious gardens and are available for purchase under a shareblock scheme.
