Johannesburg & Pretoria

Johannesburg – City of Gold – is South Africa’s largest city and the largest commercial centre on the African continent. Johannesburg is vibrant and competitive but it is also steeped in history and close to nature experiences. For those stopping over in Johannesburg, let us suggest: The city is large and has many different areas – a convenient area for a visitor is the up market and stylish Sandton – close to Mandela Square, shopping and most business headquarters. The bustling Johannesburg city centre is best visited on a guided tour – and of course a visit to Johannesburg is not complete without seeing Soweto!

Pretoria is the administrative capital of South Africa and just north of Johannesburg. Visit the Union Buildings where Nelson Mandela was inaugurated as the first black president. The history of the Afrikaners’ and the Boer wars are presented at The Voortrekker Monument. In spring Pretoria turns purple – over 70 000 Jacarandas burst into bloom. We can recommend the area Hatfield – a vibrant and happening part of town with many restaurants, also close to the University.
