Being stuck in traffic all week can take its toll. Sometimes you just want to get away from it all. Strolling through the leafy walkways in the Pretoria National Botanical Garden, it is easy to forget that you are still in the city. Get lost among the many trails, admire the waterfall and birdlife or just enjoy the tranquil surroundings with a picnic on the luscious lawns. We cannot think of a better way to connect with Mother Nature.
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 at 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.
