Known as the Jacaranda City for all the purple blossom-bedecked trees Pretoria is a lovely, quiet city. It has a long, involved and fascinating history. There are quite a few open spaces where you can walk or mountain bike in Pretoria. Nearby is the Premier Game Reserve, next door to the Cullinan Diamond Mine, where the largest diamond in the world was found. You could do a short horse trail at the Voortrekker Monument or through the Premier Reserve, taking a careful look at some white rhino and a number of eland (antelope) - which are pretty much the size of a big horse. You could do a tandem skydive or a first jump at the Pretoria Skydiving Club, which is the largest in the country.
