Pretoria is a vision of purple, thanks to its plethora of blossoming trees that gave the South African metropolis its nickname: Jacaranda City. Give in to the animal magnetism of the National Zoological Gardens of South Africa, then get up close and personal with the big, bad kitties of the Cheetah Research and Breeding Centre. The buildings of Pretoria reflect diverse architectural styles and influences, creating a unique urban landscape.
Nestled in the heart of Pretoria, the National Zoo is home to more than 6500 animals. Where else can you see rare and endangered species like Koala, Okapi and Komodo dragon? And visit an aquarium in Pretoria? Come and visit the Zoo!
