At this time of year (early in December), everyone is focusing on the holidays, the festive season, and holiday plans for what is, in South Africa, the major holiday period of the year. Some holidaymakers will go off to a game lodge in one of this country’s many game and wildlife reserves, whilst the majority is likely to head for a beachside holiday destination.


Out-of-season holidays


However, as the annual exodus towards the beaches begins, there are many residents of upcountry areas who choose to take their holidays at other times during the year or out of peak season, when resorts and the roads are quieter. The same applies to many of those who don’t have children of school-going age, and are thus able to take their holidays out of season.


A white Christmas


Residents of normally busy, affluent areas such as Sandton, otherwise also known as “the richest square mile in Africa”, may decide to take their holidays overseas, in cooler or cold climates. Skiing and winter resorts are favourite destinations at this time of the year.


Properly dressed visitors from warm places remain comfortable there. Because of the demographics of their regular wealthy customers, certain garment and outdoor outlets in shopping malls like Sandton City cater year-round for overseas icy conditions, enabling South Africans and Sandtonites to spend a white Christmas appropriately attired.


December in Sandton


December is perhaps not the best time of year to view properties for sale in Sandton and elsewhere in South Africa, simply because too many people are away on their annual holidays. Occasionally, it is possible to view certain properties for sale in Sandton during December, providing that permission, specific access, and viewing arrangements are made upfront with owners and reputable estate agents, such as our independent, reputable agents at Fine & Country South Africa.


Factories close until the earlier part of January, so manufacturing is at a standstill. Builders take their leave annually, during set dates, usually beginning on the 16th of December – a traditional public holiday in South Africa. Nevertheless, it’s the busiest time of year for the retail industry everywhere, Sandton included, where some of the widest collections of fine giftware in Africa can be found.


Pure pleasurable living and lifestyle


Although many Sandton property owners do go away on holiday, especially those who own holiday homes elsewhere, increasing numbers of residents stay home during the festive season. At this time of year and with exception of the shops and malls, Sandton is quieter than during any other time and represents the pure pleasure of living in this affluent area.


One has a unique, unusually calm, and supremely pleasurable experience when travelling in and around Sandton, sight-seeing, or simply viewing possible properties for sale by “window shopping” from the comfort of your vehicle. For prospective property buyers from elsewhere in South Africa and abroad, it’s a great opportunity to familiarise yourself with the area, its infrastructure, and its attractions. This is an invaluable exercise for those who envisage making an appointment to view properties for sale in person, in detail, in the new year, accompanied by a Fine & Country South Africa agent who specialises in Sandton properties for sale.
