I have resided in this charming city in the shadows of the ancient and majestic Magaliesberg for the greater part of my life. I know it like the palm of my hand and remain deeply in love with it after all these years. The City is steeped in a rich cultural history – the home to thousand of smaller African cultural communities, the centre of the mighty Mathambele kingdom, the slumbering capitol of the old Transvaal Republic and the Acropolis of Nelson Mandela’s dreams of a free, fair and democratic society.
The Pretoria of today is a bustling African Metropolis where numerous cultures rub shoulders. It has a certain allure with its beautiful rocky outcrops (Koppies), leafy and tranquil suburbs, thousands of Jacaranda Trees, wide open spaces where Gnu, Zebra and antelope roam freely. All of which are complimented by stately buildings, monuments, art galleries, Haute Cuisine, steak houses and burger bistros.
Let me be your trusted companion on your journey through the City, the Pilanesberg and the Cradle of Humankind.
