The city of Pretoria has many attractions to keep visitors entertained. The State Theatre, a host of shopping malls, rooftop drive-in, ice skating, and of course all the historic buildings, monuments and museums. In the center of town is the Pretoria City Hall and the Transvaal Museum across the road. Church Square is home to the statue of Paul Kruger, former State President of the South African Republic.
The National Zoological Gardens is the largest zoo in South Africa and the only one which has a national status and one of the top rated zoos in the world. The Transvaal Museum near Church Square is also not to be missed. Or take a step into nature and hike through the Wonderboom Nature Reserve or a leisurely stroll through the Pretoria Botanical Gardens. During springtime, why not visit the popular Pretoria Show?
