The population, just under a million, consists mainly of officials, and in Pretoria life goes at a much slower pace than in the hectic Johannesburg. It is quite easy for the visitor to find his or her way through the city, which is laid out like a chess board. Pretoria lies 1367 m above sea level, which makes it about 400 m lower than Johannesburg. It is surrounded by protecting mountains and home to the magnificent Union Buildings.
Please Note: Enquire about the Pretoria & Cullinan Diamond Mine Full Day Tour, if you are interested in extending this Pretoria City Tour to include a visit to the operational Cullinan Diamond mine.
