Pretoria

MMenlyn Park deserves its reputation as one of South Africa’s greatest shopping destinations for local and international visitors alike. Along with hundreds of shops, the centre is home to a rooftop drive-in cinema, the Barnyard Theatre and Galaxy World, which provide exciting entertainment for shoppers.

Menlyn Park in welcoming Pretoria is so popular with South Africans that many shoppers from Johannesburg prefer to drive to Menlyn in Pretoria instead of doing their shopping in one of their closer malls. The spacious centre is one of Africa’s biggest and is conveniently situated along the N1 highway.

It is hard to think of an item that you will be unable to buy at the prestigious Menlyn Park, which boasts all the country’s main chain stores but is also home to an impressive array of speciality shops. Scuba diving gear, designer dresses, a cup of delicious coffee or a three-course meal: it won’t take you long to find it in Menlyn.
