Gauteng: Johannesburg to Pretoria Map
There is plenty to see, do and experience in Gauteng. Here are a few travel tips from Portfolio for this vibrant region of South Africa.
Cullinan - This is where the world’s largest diamond was discovered. Visit the Premier Diamond Mine and the charming village of Cullinan, just outside of Pretoria.
Halfway House – Take a flip at the Grand Central flying school at Halfway House. Be extra daring and request a helicopter for an adrenalin-filled flight!
Kyalami – Home to the only Lipizzaner school outside of Europe, with spectacular weekly shows every Sunday. Proceeds go to supporting the school.
Magaliesburg – Rise with the sun in a hot-air balloon and drift over fields and valleys. Spend the day doing the Magalies Meander or the Crocodile River Ramble.
Pretoria – Home of Sir Herbert Baker’s magnificent Union Buildings and the beautifully restored Melrose House. While in Pretoria, visit the Sammy and Marks Museum or spend a day at the zoo with the family. It’s all happening around Brooklyn Circle and Hatfield – meet the locals in popular eateries and browse the boutiques, art and décor shops.
