Centurion is one of the fastest growing centres in South Africa and although quite separate forms part of Tshwane Metro. It doesn't have the history you'll find in Pretoria but has a more modern look and feel. It is easily accessible from OR Tambo International Airport and within easy reach of the Johannesburg, Midrand and Pretoria CBD's. Places of interest worth visiting are Sun City, The Cradle of Humankind, the Lesedi Cultural Village, the de Wildt Cheetah & Wildlife Centre, the Lion Park, Soweto, Gold Reef City, and Montecasino - to name but a few. For those with an interest in history a visit to the Jan Smuts House, incorporating a museum dedicated to one of SA's most famous statesman is a must. Here can also be found the Irene Dairy Farm where a Village Market is held every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month, considered by many as one of the best craft markets in South Africa.
There are numerous top-quality restaurants in this area, conference centres, two magnificent golf-courses, and Centurion is Tshwane's home of test cricket. Centurion Mall has it's very own super regional shopping centre. With its wide variety of shops, services and leisure options, shoppers can enjoy shopping in an open-aired Mall boasting more than 200 stores, restaurants and cinemas.
And here the tourist and business person will find a wide range of quality accommodation emphasising comfort, cleanliness and that ever-important personal touch.
