South Africa’s capital city, Pretoria, is known as the Jacaranda city due to its plethora of gorgeous purple trees. Not only is the city defined by its diverse architectural styles and influences, but it is also home to the popular National Zoological Gardens of South Africa and other exciting places, such as the Cheetah Research and Breeding Centre.

Most people love visiting Pretoria in spring to enjoy the gorgeous Jacaranda tree-lined streets, which come into full bloom in during the season. Also, climate-wise – spring is the best time to go to Pretoria. The temperatures in spring vary between 15 to 28 degrees Celsius.
