Travel Tips for Pretoria

Pretoria Botanical Gardens

by kenHuocj

A 76 ha urban oasis is a pristine getaway a mere stone's throw away from the madding crowd.
Divided into four zones the Display area with SANBI HQ, herbarium, medicinal garden and concert stage area;
Central area with waterfall are the Aquatic, Cycad and Shade theme gardens.
Over the koppie to the succulent area on the northern side of the Garden, which is hotter and drier than the southern side, this is a rock-landscaped area – so typical of Africa.
The largest area of the Garden represents three separate sections – the African savannah garden, the natural koppie and highveld grassland areas.
this last is my favourite area, as it is typically highveld

Education is the main reason fro the Botanical Institue, since 1995 more S AFrican schoolchildren have had the chance to visit the gardesn as primary of high school scholars, thus ensuring the deeper appreciation of plants in the areas where they live and the country. so vitally important for the country's greener future as most have grown up in disadvantaged cramped 'Locations'

Good place for a picnic too, buy your provisions from Woolworths's Deli a mile East of the Gardens.
alternatively go the " Paperbark Thorn - Mohka" restaurant.

A Mediteranian Cafe

by PierreZA about Cafe 41

There are now three of these Cafe's in Pretoria.
It serves very good Mediterranian food. Food is always good. The service at the Cafe in Centurion is the worst, and the one in the Eastwood Centre (Arcadia) the best. Mezzes

Voortrekker Monument

by Orchid

The monument to Afrikaaner nationalism stands proudly between Pretoria & Centurion. For the visitor it can be seen not so much as a commemoration of apartheid, but as a tribute to the Great Trek and the Battle of Blood river - both resonant and important events in the development of the afrikaaner cultural identity.

Construction began in 1937 and was completed in time to be opened on 16 December 1949

The granite monument is surrounded by laager wall - 64 wagions, the same number brought to Blood River. On each corner are massive statues of Boer leaders. Inside the monument is the Hall of Heroes, containing a marble historical frieze which runs along all 4 walls of the monument. In the basement is the cenotaph. One can climb to the roof for an expansive view of Pretoria, or look down into the hall of heroes and the cenotaph below. The opening in the dome is designed to allow the sun to fall on the cenotaph on 16 December.

Pretoria - Administrative Capital of South Africa

by Moirads

"PWV - A Triangle"

Gauteng, South Africa, is the smallest of the nine provinces, and Johannesburg, not Pretoria, is the capital of Gauteng. Pretoria is one of three capital cities of Johannesburg (yes, it is complicated, but it was an attempt to appease the Boers at the time of the formation of the Union in 1910).

Pretoria is the administrative capital of the country, and it has some wonderful anomalies, such as the headquarters of the South African fleet being situated in this inland capital, 600 kms from the nearest sea and 1400 from the naval base in Simonstown.

Pretoria is also home to the beautiful Union Buildings, the Pretoria home of Parliament.

Bloemfontein is the judicial capital and the home of the Appeal Court. (Johannesburg is the home of the Constitutional Court, just to confuse things even more).

Cape Town is the legislative capital where Parliament convenes.
