Go horseback riding in Pretoria, South Africa!

One of South Africa’s three capital cities, Pretoria is one city where you can enjoy a number of outdoor activities. It is not as cosmopolitan compared to Johannesburg but its charm lies on its more laid back atmosphere and its incomparable urban landscape.

Known as the “Jacaranda City”, Pretoria’s gardens, parks and streets are brimming with Jaracanda trees that makes the city radiate with a lavender color especially during the months of October and November. It is blessed with a humid subtropical climate but you really don’t feel the humidity because the city is filled with greens and wide boulevards. The city is 4,393 feet above sea level and nestled in a valley, surrounded by hills. Once the center of the apartheid regime, the city has progressed beyond it, and is now becoming a city known for its multiculturalism. The city is only 54 kilometers from Johannesburg so you can visit these two cities in one visit. The best way to get into Pretoria is by air travel to Johannesburg and by train, bus or car from there. The O. R. Tambo International Airport is served by a number of international carriers.

The city is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true. Its top attractions include the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre, Voortrekker Monument, Rietvlei Nature Reserve, National Zoological Gardens of South Africa, Groenkloof Nature Reserve, Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary, Faerie Glen Nature Reserve, Bester Birds & Animals Zoo Park, Ludwig's Rose Farm, Welgedacht Game Reserve, and the Intiem Love Bridge.  If you would like to go horseback riding in Africa, Horseback Africa offers tours and safaris which features horseback riding in a bushveld or woodland, and walking with lions.

Pretoria offers unique activities which everyone in the family will enjoy. Why not consult your travel agent for great deals to Pretoria.
