Centurion is situated between Johannesburg and Pretoria and easily accessible. It is at the intersection of the N1 and N14 highways and is also a stop on the Gautrain, Gauteng’s high-speed rail transport system.
In 2000, the Centurion local government became part of the newly created City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality, which also includes Pretoria, and the town ceased to have its own Town Council.
Today Centurion features modern shopping malls (Centurion Mall, Mall@Reds, Forest Hill City Mall), several entertainment spots, a theatre, golf courses and a driving range. There are several hotels as well as a plethora of smaller guesthouses. The Unitas hospital is the largest private hospital on the African continent (including a helipad) and is part of the Netcare group.
