That Mabopane isn’t a safe place for many people. It’s full of crime and drugs, children are drinking alcohol, it’s just a mess, so I’d really advise people who move here to be really careful.

Someone considering moving to my city should know that the people there are very friendly and helpful, and also there are so many fun activities to do. The city also has a lot of criminal activities taking place so it is very important that you try to be careful.

It is has shops, gas stations, a medical clinic and a hotel nearby. It is a quiet place and known as the suburb in the townships. It is safe as neighbours know each other. We have community halls and sports and recreational courts for all persons to participate in. It is well taken care of.

Mabopane is a township north of Pretoria. You can expect a very welcoming community and a variety of colorful characters. You will find an array of unique and exciting activities to do during your stay. Various amenities include, running water, electricity, hot water etc. There are multiple night clubs you can visit should you feel the need to loosen up every once in a while.
