Sixt Tips

One piece of trivia about Pretoria is that Winston Churchill was once held captive at the Staats Model School in Pretoria, only to escape and later flee to Mozambique Churchill would rise to become the British Prime Minister from 1940 to 1945 as well as from 1951 to 1955. The city is popularly known as the Jacaranda City owing to the more than 50,000 Jacaranda trees that line the streets and carpet the city in purple during spring. The trees were initially imported from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1888 by a resident of the city. Animal lovers will delight in the many animal sanctuaries and parks in and near the city.
