Let’s Go Pretoria!

By in Travel No Comments

It was overcast and drizzling a bit today as we left for a tour of Pretoria. No wind though with the temperature in the early 20’s. We visited the Voortrekker Monument, downtown Pretoria, The Union Buildings (office of the president of South Africa) rounding off the tour with a lovely Cappuccino at Huckleberry’s garden restaurant before saying goodbye to our guests from Ireland after their three-week stay in South Africa. Thank you so much for visiting South Africa! Looking forward to seeing you next year.

Bushmans Loop

While on tour in the North West province we decided to explore a nearby animal sanctuary. It’s beautiful, lush green natural forest viewed from elevated walkways winding their way through the forest on the Bushmans Loop trail.

On Safari from Pretoria, this Marabou Stork was quite comfortable having us taking pictures while brushing itself up a bit. It’s a large bird, almost 1,5m high, about 8 – 9 kg with a wing span of about 3,7 m !

A Day Trip from Pretoria to the Cradle of Human Kind

By in Travel No Comments

Our day trip from Pretoria to the Cradle of Human Kind offered our guests from the USA a fantastic outing prior to departing for OR Tambo airport to catch an early evening flight on Lufthansa. The Sterkfontein caves was an awesome sight with detail explanations on archaeological discoveries made such as “Miss Pless” and “Little Foot”. Next up was Maropeng, a visitor’s delight, taking us back in time till modern day.

I emailed African Tracks Safaris asking to set up a custom Day Tour from Pretoria including the Bush Baby Monkey Sanctuary, Lion Park and Elephant Sanctuary. African Tracks Safaris responded promptly and organized everything! Johan was wonderful to spend the day with and very knowledgeable on the places we visited and South Africa in general. He also took a ton of pictures and a video for me, which are fantastic keepsakes.
