InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Pretoria

Hello to all Americans in Pretoria! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Pretoria? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Pretoria which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Pretoria doesn’t have to hide from its bigger neighbor Johannesburg. The administrative capital of South Africa is a quite academic city known for its three universities and local research institutions, the variety of architectural styles reflecting the diverse cultural influences throughout Pretoria’s past, and much more! With the various bus services (e.g. by PUTCO), as well as the Metrorail Gauteng services in Pretoria’s metropolitan area, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in in one of the eastern suburbs of Pretoria or even further out in such areas as Midrand, which are still well connected thanks to the Gautrain line to Johannesburg and only about a 20-minute ride away from Pretoria’s center.

Although Pretoria has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Pretoria, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
