Rivonia is one of the most affluent residential and commercial business suburbs in Johannesburg and is regarded as the hub of IT startup companies, media houses and advertising agencies. Rivonia is bordered by Bryanston, Petervale, Paulshof, Morningside, Sunninghill, Megawatt Park and Woodmead, and has direct access from the N1 Concrete Highway. Rivonia is historically important as it was in Rivonia at Liliesleaf Farm where the accused in the 1964 Rivonia Trial were arrested. Liliesleaf Farm had been used as a hideout for prominent members of the African National Congress, including Nelson Mandela and Govan Mbeki.
