Pretoria – World Cup Travel Guide
PRETORIA or ePitoli as it is knownin the townships,has bee
n a fairly conservative town however since the end of
apartheid Pretoria has become a cosmopolitan city and is one of
Southern Africa’s fastest growing cities, Most Pretorian’s are not
Akrikaners but Sotho and Ndebele, and the change of government
has brought many more well-educated and well-paid
blacks into the ranks of civil servants living in the capital.
The city’s Afrikaner community is hardly monolithic, either:
as well as the stereotypical khaki-shorted rednecks,there are
thousands of students, an active art scene and a thriving Afrikaans
gay and lesbian community.
Pretoria is fairly close to Johannesburg’s airport to provide a practical
alternative base in Gauteng.Pretoria is relatively saferthan
Johannesburg and it is less spread out, there are more
conventional sites,some of which are worth seeing, and the nightlife
of Hatfield and Brooklyn is energetic and fun.
