The Tshwane metropolis lies to the north of Johannesburg and is home to Pretoria, the administrative capital of South Africa. Tshwane retains an air of sophistication thanks to its historic architecture and jacaranda-lined streets.
The Union Buildings, home to the governing powers and the president of the country, is a Herbert Baker-designed building worth visiting.
The region takes in suburbs and townships like Centurion, Atteridgeville and Mamelodi, and all of the former Metsweding region, and therefore has a whole range of attractions for visitors to experience.
Places of interest in the region include the National Zoological Gardens of South Africa and the Voortrekker Monument. You can venture beyond the city borders and see the Tswaing Meteorite Crater, where a massive piece of intergalactic rock hit the earth millions of years ago and the quaint town of Cullinan with its own local attractions.
Pretoria is home to some of the country's finest museums, while those looking for a fun night out need look no further than Hatfield.
Loftus Versfeld, which has been newly renovated for the FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup, can also be found in the area.
