Discover Pretoria by webcam
Located in the northern part of Gauteng Province, Pretoria is one of South Africa's three capital cities (besides Cape Town and Bloemfontein) and de facto the national capital. Pretoria is part of the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality and therefore sometimes referred to as Tshwane. At the moment there's a discussion about the name of the capital - this issue is still being decided.

South Africa is semi-arid, with most of the country an interior plateau which stretches far north to the Sahara. The landscape ranges from savannah, wetlands, tropical forests and swamps to sand - both beach and desert. The Great Escarpment sweeps the southern and eastern region of the country. 300 km west of Durban is the kingdom of Lesotho, a separate country entirely within the political boundaries of South Africa.
