Rivonia is a large suburb in the north of Johannesburg bounded in the west by Bryanston, in the north by the Witkoppen Road and in the east by Bowling Road. The Rivonia Road, which starts as an extension of the Oxford at Illovo, has become a focus point for a great number of new office parks and commercial headquarters along its entire length, passes through Rivonia at its northern end and joins Witkoppen with an on ramp to the N1 circular highway.
Just to the right of and parallel to the Rivonia Road is the Rivonia Boulevard. This is a relatively new boulevard of cobbled streets and pedestrian walkways, and has several large shopping malls and centers and houses most well-known major chain stores. The Boulevard has several good boutiques and a host of small restaurants and cafes. This is a place to meet for that lunchtime drink or romantic evening meal. Away from the main thoroughfares of Rivonia are a collection of up-market houses set in quiet surroundings.
