Our representative will go through your travel documentation with you, providing sightseeing tips and advice on the many interesting places you can visit. You can hire a rental car for your time in the city or pre-book any guided tours that you may wish to take, such as Cape Point, Table Mountain and Winelands.

For many visitors to South Africa, there's no finer way to see the country than on the popular weekly journeys between Cape Town and Pretoria (or vice versa). From the coast, the 1600-kilometre (994-mile) route follows an old pioneering trail carved out of the African bushveld, passing through the Winelands and climbing up to the interior through the Hex River Valley. Highlights of the route include visits to the historic village of Matjiesfontein, a 100-year-old refreshment stop in the arid Karoo, and Kimberley, the diamond boom-town that's home to the Big Hole, the world's largest man-made excavation.
Day 7 - Pretoria
Private Car Service
You will be collected from Rovos Rail Station after your arrival and transferred by road to the elegant Illyria House in Pretoria.
Pretoria is the Administrative Capital of South Africa, with grand buildings and most of the foreign embassies located here, thus giving the whole city a dignified presence.
