Welcome

Here you will find my favourite things to do and places to go to in Pretoria.

My writing has taken a slight turn for the time being. To be safe during Covid-19, I have stopped my travels and visits. Being home more means I get to spend much more time with my dogs. So it only makes sense to pursue my art and writing in my dog blog, Ultimutt Love. After all, I’m a super proud dog mom!

All things Pretoria

Known as the Jacaranda City for all the purple blossom-bedecked trees, Pretoria is a wonderful city. We have many cool landmarks, restaurants, food markets, and events to keep you entertained.

Support Local Businesses

Lockdown has been tough on many small businesses and I would like to help as much as I can. So here you will find information on local businesses you can support. And if you would like to be featured, please get in touch.
