Pretoria offers more to a traveler than just one night stay on your way to the Kruger National Park. It is a beautiful city with an abundance of museums (don't miss the Transvaal museum), botanical gardens, Voortrekker monument, Union buildings to name but a few. It is a good place to stay and visit nearby smaller towns like Cullinan (where the cullinan diamond was found) and Krugersdorp. In the evenings there is lots of excellent restaurants to cater for all your needs. Shopping centres are also easy to find and cater for African curios to designer lables. The people is very friendly and would usually assist you.
