Three great places to visit in Tshwane

Whether you are looking for a change of scenery or visiting Tshwane during the lockdown period, you may find that your options are a little more different than before. Social distancing and various other laws and regulations have seen a big change in the way in which people find entertainment.

Here are three places you can visit in the City of Tshwane during lockdown:

Rietvlei Nature Reserve

Established in 1929, the Rietveli Nature Reserve spans across 4000 hectares of land. While there are a few hiking trails, the reserve is only allowing self-drive viewing with only 50 cars allowed inside at a time. But we’ll take a day of game-viewing from our car over watching TV any day. For more information on the safety rules and regulations as well as the entry fees to the reserve, visit the Meetup site.

Pretoria Art Museum

Art is always a good idea. And if you cannot make art, you can at least appreciate the works of others. The Pretoria Art Museum offers pieces ranging from paper to ceramics, mixed media, painting and tons more. For only R25 to marvel at these works, we think it’s worth the visit.

National Botanical Gardens

We can’t stress enough how important it is to get out into the fresh air, just to clear one’s mind and reconnect with nature. The National Botanical Gardens is a great place to unwind and take in the beauty of nature right on your doorstep. Take a trail walk and admire the birds or simply sit in silence and experience bliss.
