About
Known as the “Jacaranda City" due to its mauve blossomed tree-lined streets, Pretoria is a quiet city in North Gauteng. It is one of the country's three capital cities, serving as the seat of the administrative branch of government. Pretoria was founded in 1855 by Marthinus Pretorius, a leader of the Voortrekkers, who named it after his father Andries Pretorius and chose a spot on the banks of the "Apies rivier" (Afrikaans for "Monkeys river") to be the new capital of the South African Republic (ZAR). We stop at the Voortrekker Monument located just south of Pretoria. This massive granite structure is prominently located on a hilltop, and was raised to commemorate the Voortrekkers who left the Cape Colony between 1835 and 1854. We pass the house of Paul Kruger and Church Square then head to,The Union Buildings which form the official seat of the South African Government and also house the offices of the President of South Africa.

Excellent adventure in Pretoria
Mar 2020 • Couples
The tour was excellently conducted. We were picked up at our b&b on time. It was a interesting introduction to life in South Africa especially the Vooktrekkers museum.
Our guide Macy was knowledgeable and very instructive.
Thank you Macy.

Excellent Tour of Pretoria
Nov 2019 • Couples
We had a wonderful 1/2 day tour of Pretoria with Nosipho. We had to reschedule our trip because of a health issue & she was super accommodating. Nosipho is a fountain of knowledge on all subjects related to South Africa and has an extremely warm personality. My elderly mom joined us on the tour and she had a wonderful too. We highly recommend taking one of her tours - we will definitely do so in future trips to SA.

Pretoria is not an easy town to visit for a tourist.The distances are huge and transport is necessary. We made a halfday tour with MoAfrika tours and Emmah as an excellent guide and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Especially the Voortrekker Memorial was impressive both regarding history, views and interior.
And of course you need a picture of Nelson Mandela! Grand as a person and as a statue. We visited Pretoria in October with the Jacaranda trees blossoming, which was beautiful, but a half or whole day tour is enough for a tourist to see the city.

Had a really informative tour with Nosipho stopping at the Voortrekker monument, Freedom Park for a guided tour and visit to the museum and to Union Buildings and gardens. She is extremely knowledgeable and happily answered any questions about the history of each place and about South Africa today. I highly recommend to anyone who wishes to do a Pretoria city tour to book this trip.

Jul 2019 • Solo
The company organised a tour for me despite making the booking in the late afternoon on the Saturday and me being the only person on the tour on the Sunday.

Nosipho was knowledgeable, informative and let me explore things at my own pace without any pressure.
