Come beautiful South Africa, often referred to as “a world in one country”! Robert from our travel agency Lufthansa City Center Park Travel in Pretoria is our destination expert today. In the picture you see him standing in front of the Union Buildings at the 9 metre tall bronze stature of Nelson Mandela.
Let’s hear from Robert the top 3 things to do in Pretoria:
“There are few sights more beautiful than Pretoria’s Jacaranda trees in full bloom and showering the streets with their purple petals – so a perfect time to visit the Jacaranda City would be September/October.
Also I definitely recommend visiting the Rietvlei Nature Reserve! It is said to be the largest game reserve within city borders in the world – where you can view rhino, buffalo, cheetah, antelope and more on the 40km tar and dirt roads.
The Freedom Park opened its doors in December 2007. It is a space where South Africans and our visitors can reflect on the past, and is an inspiration for the future. It is regarded as one of the most ambitious heritage projects the government has invested in - an attempt to encapsulate the heart and soul of South Africa in a physical space.
