Sunninghill is a commercial and residential suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. It is located in Region A of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality. The N1 freeway, which at this area is eight lanes across, forms its southern boundary with access at Rivonia offramp. The K60 road runs through the centre of Sunninghill to assist in easing traffic. Sunninghill is bordered by the suburbs of Paulshof, Kyalami and Woodmead.

There has been significant growth within the suburb, with most previously open land spaces becoming occupied by residential complexes or businesses.

Many residents are skilled young adults working in financial, legal, culinary or consulting type industries.
