Pretoria, the seat of the government and central administration, has been part of the Tshwane urban area encompassing the surrounding townships since 2005. This huge conurbation is a quiet provincial city dotted with gardens and a city centre boasting many historical monuments and fascinating museums. October is the best time to visit Pretoria, when the jacarandas adorning its sidewalks are in full bloom with pale purple flowers.
