Pretoria is a lovely, quiet city known as the Jacaranda City for all the purple blossom-bedecked trees which line its thoroughfares.
It has a long, involved and fascinating history. Here you will find significant old buildings and fascinating museums. The Transvaal Museum has natural history displays and is the home of Mrs Ples, the australopithecine fossil found at Sterkfontein in the Cradle of Humankind.
