Affectionately known as the Jacaranda City for its beautiful and extensive display of purple blossomed Jacaranda trees, Pretoria is a quaint, laid-back city with many attractions.

Even locals that reside in neighbouring cities around Pretoria choose the Jacaranda City as their holiday destination as a break away from their stressful routines.
