With the lilac splendour of jacarandas as its trademark, Tshwane has grown into a metropolis that encapsulates the rainbow nation. It is here where people of all races, colours and creeds gather.
Tshwane resembles Africa with a touch of Europe and a pinch of oriental spice.
Tshwane lies in the smallest of the country's nine provinces, Gauteng (the Sotho word for 'the place of gold'). Tshwane's neighbouring provinces are the North West Province, Mpumalanga, and the Limpopo Province.
It includes Pretoria, Centurion, Laudium, Eersterust, Akasia and Soshanguve, as well as the surrounding areas of Atteridgeville, Crocodile River, Ga-Rankuwa, Mabopane, Winterveld, Hammanskraal, Temba, and Mamelodi
