"driving through the area surrounding the city" Pretoria Things to Do Tip by nora_south_africa

Pretoria Things to Do: 171 reviews and 245 photos

Because the area is fairly mountainous there are also several ?poorts? or ?neks? through the hills and mountains to make it possible for people to drive through tunnels and gaps in the mountains. Some of these gaps were made by the Voortrekkers to make it easier for their ox wagons to travel in the area, but some were made later as the city expanded and traffic became busier.
