Traveling along the De Villiers Graaff Motorway from Johannesburg, you will reach the Khyber Rock area in about 30 minutes. The suburb can be easily accessed from any area in Johannesburg as it lies adjacent to the Buccleuch Interchange. This gives you access to the Pretoria Main Road, the N1 Western Bypass, the N3 Eastern Bypass and Woodmead Drive.
The suburb consists of the smaller townhouses and complexes, but also has a number of larger and beautifully designed freestanding houses. The exclusive area is very green with trees lining the pavements and lush gardens with every house. The suburb is known to form part of an extinct volcanic area. The rocks and ground are therefore rich in minerals and metals, which in turns attracts a lot of lightning strikes during the summer thunderstorms.
The main road that will take you through the entire area is Lincoln Street. This street will also take you through to Woodlands drive and the large commercial area south of Khyber Rock. To the east of the suburb are other commercial and industrial areas, which includes the Woodmead Retail Park and a bit further away, the Bridge Shopping Mall.
The Suburb has no schools of its own, but there are some to be found in the surrounding areas. You will find the Buccleuch Primary school close to the Pretoria Main Road and in the opposite direction, the King David Primary School. Also in this area of Woodmead, is the Johannesburg Country Club. The Club offers quality golf courses and great conferencing facilities.
