Pretoria - South Africa

Pretoria is a city located in the northern part of Gauteng Province, South Africa. It is one of the country's three capital cities, serving as the executive (administrative) and official de facto capital; the others are Cape Town, the legislative capital, and Bloemfontein, the judicial capital.Pretoria is contained in the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality as one of several constituent former administrations (among which also Centurion and Soshanguve), and therefore sometimes incorrectly referred to as Tshwane — this contentious issue is still being decided.

gberchenko_2000 :

Are there taxi ranks in Pretoria Central Business District? If so, where? If not,where do I catch a minibus taxi from Pretoria back to Johannesburg.

Motti _Shish :
"Of course there are, but I am afraid that I don't know where exactly :-/ Sorry!"
unreal hero :
"Yes, go down Bloed Street towards the east. There is one a few blocks past the Pretoria zoo. *Edit* Now what's up with the thumbs down? What a loser."
Zukin :
"There is a taxi/bus station on Church street (West). There are busses that go to JHB from there often."
poepies :
"Unreal Hero is right. It is near the Zoo! I think there is one a block above Pretorius strees as well, not sure what street that is!"
Chucky :
"Why do u need a taxi rank? Just stand next to the road and point your finger to the sky! At least 3 taxi's will stop!!!"
CJ :
"In Pretoria, taxis to Joburg are available at Bosman Street (close to Park Station). Thats a busy lane, so in ten minutes max you will be on your way. Actually, pointing you finger up won't work in this situation as that symbolises 'going to town - going to city centre' so when you're already in the city centre that won't trigger an action."

Hi. I am not looking for any website links, but just trying to find out what Ohagans in Pretoria is like on a Friday night? Can one meet up there for a drink with a large group of friends, and is the music soft enough to chat?

Hi, I wonder what's better between these two cities for a black/white french couple? What about the language schools, universities and jobs in Pretoria? I know JHB, but is PTA really more safe? Thx...

Donnie Danger :
"South Africa has become quite a violent and dangerous place... Pretoria is probably a tad safer. Good luck"
matrix :
"yea definitely Pretoria, its still not perfect but I've experienced many problems in joburg"
sweet - angel :
"Pretoria is much safer but JOZI rocks!"
Pleasantflower :
"Yeah, Pretoria would be your best bet! They've got a really good university there...and the schools, I hear, are also really good! The language schools (if you're talking about primary and highschools) they would have Afrikaans/English...or just english or Afrikaans! Plus, all the embassies are there!"
*SA Chick* :
"I have always lived in JHB, never been to Pretoria so i wouldnt know about the schools. Sorry."
gunner2za :
"i dont like either. I would venture pretoria"
vanwykestelle :
"PTA by far!"
M :
"Go to Cape Town. Much safer than both Joburg or Pretoria. Much more beautiful too. There is good language schools and everything you need. Trust me I travel allot. Currently in China and I cant wait to get back to Cape Town."
