The beauty of booking a holiday to this part of the world is that you can benefit from easy access to both cities, no matter where you base yourself. You can drive from Pretoria to Johannesburg in under 40 minutes. Stay in Jo’burg or Pretoria, and you can explore both cities and take your pick of exciting neighbourhoods. Head to Johannesburg City, and you’ll find glittering skyscrapers, modern luxury hotels, and the über-cool central neighbourhoods of Braamfontein and Maboneng. These neighbourhoods are hotspots for trendy new bars and restaurants. Away from the centre, the suburbs of Sandton provide the ultimate luxury urban retreat. Here you’ll find spa hotels, designer boutiques, green spaces and plenty of world-class restaurants. Travel north to Pretoria and visit the city’s eastern suburbs of Waterkloof and Brooklyn. These neighbourhoods offer a quiet, scenic stay complete with jacaranda-lined streets, golf courses, and quaint museums. In Pretoria, you can spend your days exploring historic monuments like the Voortrekker Monument, admire government buildings, or visit nearby nature reserves.
