The Johannesburg suburb of Gallo Manor is situated in the north of the city to the East of Bowling Road. Gallo Manor is bounded in the north by the Johannesburg Country Club and in the south by Wendywood. Gallo Manor is an up-market suburb, much of which is fenced off as a high security area, but it has managed to retain an almost park like atmosphere, attributable in part to the lush lawns, established gardens and tree-lined streets. The suburb is very close to the vast Buccleuch Interchange which links the N1, M1 and N3 highways, making easy access to all parts of South Africa. The suburb is about 30 minutes drive from Johannesburg International Airport.

Homes in Gallo Manor are consistently in demand, whatever the market vagaries. Gallo Manor has been touted as contemporary crossover city / country living and has managed this largely because there are few townhouse and cluster developments and many of the homes here are on sprawling properties.

Situated just a few blocks from Gallo Manor is the Woodmead Commercial Park, which houses a number of well-known consumer outlets in the Woodmead Value Mart and the Woodmead Super Value Centre. The suburb is also close to the Vodacom World of Golf and the Woodmead Golf Driving Range. The suburb is just a few blocks from Rivonia Boulevard, where most top stores have a branch.

Fourways, Kyalami, Midrand and the airport are all within easy reach of Gallo Manor, and there are a number of restaurants and shops nearby. The suburb is ten minutes away from Monte Casino and the rather big Fourways Mall.

From Gallo Manor you also have easy access to get out of the city and away from it all, particularly if you head out towards the Magaliesberg and Cradle of Humankind, a World Heritage site where at least seven of thirteen fossil sites have yielded hominid remains making it one of the world’s richest concentrations of fossil hominid-bearing sites. You can view the remains of Mrs Ples at the Sterkfontein caves or visit the Wonder Cave where the enormous chamber is believed to be 2.2 million years old.
