Flamingo Vlei offers a lifestyle that once you have experienced you will never want to leave. It borders Rietvlei Nature Reserve where Flamingo’s and Pelicans can be seen. Rietvlei Nature Reserve is the home for migrating birds which makes it a paradise for bird lovers. Ducks walking along Sandpiper Crescent and Pentz drive is nothing unusual. There is easy access to walks along the perimeter of the vlei which is heaven for dog walks, jogging. Nature on your doorstep.

Then what suburb has the luxury of SANCOB an organization that is well-known for rescueing and rehabilitating sea birds that have been harmed by oil spills on their doorstep. But that’s not all they do. When your cat has caught that bird and your kid’s are panic stricken you are able to take the injured bird in the renown tissue box wheatbix box to them and for a nominal fee they will take care of it.

Flamingo Vlei has managed to hold onto a lifestyle enjoyed in years gone by with children riding their bikes in the street, kids having garage sales and families taking evening walks. What more can I say Flamingo Vlei just that Flamingo Vlei offers a wonderful lifestyle. Milnerton Aquatic Club is based at Rietvlei and is a base for numerous watersports like boating, waterskiing, windsurfing. The local residents who don’t participate in water sports can also enjoy taking walks to the bird watching huts.

This quiet suburb has quick and easy access to exit roads leading to the City, Northern Suburbs and the important destination shopping malls. The shopping malls closest to Flamingo Vlei are Flamingo Square, Bayside and the Pic’n Pay Mall.

The two well-known government schools Table View High School ,Table View Primory School and the pre-primory school Lilliput that always brings back fond memories to all are all found in the Flamingo Vlei area. There are also many private schools in the area like Christian Brother’s College, Elkana House, Parklands College. All amenities are close at hand like the Police Station, Virgin Active gym, Tennis Club and soccer club.
