There is simply no better place to live than in Pretoria. The city has so much to offer, and its versatility knows no bounds. Think purple streets in October, the crowd on Loftus Versveld when the Bulls score a try, and the happy sounds of vuvuzelas from hooting taxis draped in Mamelodi Sundowns flags. The Best of Pretoria Readers’ Choice Awards celebrates all this and more, and gives you the chance to tell us what and who is the best the capital city has to offer.
One lucky voter can win a two nights’ stay for two at the luxurious five star Walkersons Hotel and Spa – a wonderful country affair just outside the quaint village of Dullstroom. The cottages are tucked away in a valley of trees surrounded by grasslands and dams. Natural stone buildings with lots of nooks and crannies reminds one of a Scottish country manor. Spend three days and two nights at Walkersons Hotel and Spa with someone special and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. The spoil includes dinner, bed and breakfast and as a little extra spoil, you will be able to relax and unwind with some well deserved spa treatments.
