Start Early:

Begin your day promptly to make the most of each stop. Pretoria's attractions can be busy, and starting early helps you avoid crowds.

Dress Comfortably:

Wear comfortable walking shoes and light, breathable clothing. Pretoria's weather can be warm, especially when exploring outdoor sites like the Union Buildings gardens and the Botanical Garden.
