Sheltered in a warm valley and surrounded by the hills of the Magaliesberg range, lies the city of Pretoria – also known as the Jacaranda City. This refers to more than 50 000 purple bedazzled trees which line the streets of this enchanting city. Compared with the ‘hip and happening’ neighbouring city of Johannesburg, Pretoria might seem sleepy, maybe even placid, but make no mistake, there is a lot more than initially meets the eye:

Pretoria is one of the three capital cities of the country and serves as the administrative capital (Cape Town is the legislative capital and Bloemfontein is the judicial capital), and is home to many foreign embassies to South Africa. The reputation of an academic city is earned by the three universities (the University of South Africa, University of Pretoria and Tshwane University of Technology), and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) located within the city borders. The Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality is an amalgamation of several former local authorities including Centurion and Soshanguve, with Pretoria being the central part.

The recent additions of Time Square Casino and Menlyn Maine have ensured that Pretoria now competes with the best of entertainment in South Africa.

The Pretoria Botanical Gardens and The National Zoological Gardens of South Africa, better known as the Pretoria Zoo remain firm favourites amongst places to see in Pretoria for old and young.

Pretoria is connected to Limpopo in the North and Johannesburg in the South via the N1 highway, and Mpumalanga in the East and North West province in the West via the N4 highway. O.R. Tambo International Airport is situated 45km from the City Centre of Pretoria, and Lanseria International Airport is 35km from the CBD. Pretoria also has its own airport in the northern suburb of Wonderboom, Wonderboom Airport, that recently started connecting Cape Town and Pretoria with passenger flights. The Gautrain is South Africa’s first high-speed railway station that provides commuter transport from Hatfield and Pretoria CBD to O.R. Tambo International and Sandton, and all major towns in between. Metrorail operates commuter rail services around Pretoria, and A Re Yeng is Pretoria newest edition to bus commuter services.
