Alberton is situated on the banks of the Natal Spruit close to the major urban centres of Johannesburg and Pretoria.
Alberton borders on the Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve. This reserve is home to many wild animals, including zebra, red hartebeest, porcupines, black wildebeest and 170 bird species.
There are also Iron Age settlements dating from about 1500 and the ruins of a house built in 1850 by voortrekker Sarel Marais.
The Rondebult Bird Sanctuary is a 95-hectare wetland, that is home to over 190 species of incredible birdlife, some of which are migrants. Originally a sewage site, the region was redeveloped with marshlands, reedbeds, dams and grasslands, which attract a rich array of birdlife.
