Pretoria, South Africa's administrative capital, offers a wealth of experiences for tourists and citizens.  This lofty city, known for her purple jacaranda  haze in October, is also home to the lovers of history, arts and culture, education, science and industry, leisure, parks, nature and wildlife. The book offers numerous tit-bits of information of interest to the visitor, including a guide to restaurants, accommodation, theatres, shopping malls and public services.

 

Discover Pretoria introduces the visitor to the historical background and main highlights of the city. For Pretorians too, this book opens many treasures right on their doorstep.
