Equestria Centre Retirement Village


Equestria Centre retirement village is designed for the over fifties who enjoy an active and socially varied lifestyle. Our residents’ have a desire to live a healthy lifestyle and wish to simplify their lives by downsizing their residential accommodation as well as the related maintenance and management requirements.

Equestria Centre retirement village is set in beautiful surroundings

The retirement village features elegant water fountains and spacious designs in the developing area of Equestria in Pretoria East. With their lighter load of responsibilities, our residents spend their time with family and friends, travelling, volunteering and even catch up on their reading. This is what retired life is meant to be like! The developer of the Equestria retirement village wished for exactly this when he designed the centre. A purpose-built environment that offers residents the opportunity to lead a healthy and independent lifestyle… And gain from strong social connections – which is a leading factor in life fulfilment as well as extended health. And, the emphasis on ‘quality of life’ is what makes Equestria retirement village unique. Our residents enjoy exceptional senior living in a secure environment with 24-hour gated security and a perimeter wall, topped with multi-zoned electric fencing. Additionally, every unit is connected via state-of-the-art telephone system (which has a panic button) to the security control room. All residents can phone within the village free of charge.
