South Africa has loads to offer in terms of its culture, diversity, natural heritage and art, making it an awesome place to travel to! Guesthouses provide a much more pocket-friendly option than staying at a hotel, especially in a city like Pretoria. Besides, they offer services like customized meals, wake-up calls, laundry service and airport transfers all of which can be expected from a hotel as well, and at much better rates.
