• Jacaranda lined street in Pretoria

Stay at Mont d’Or Bohemian House in October and watch the streets turn purple.

Posted on Fri September 8, 2017 in Things to do in Pretoria.

You might know that Pretoria is called South Africa’s Jacaranda City because of all the beautiful Jacaranda trees that fill the parks and streets. But did you know that once a year, around springtime, a great energy starts to build as the locals get ready for a big celebration?

Every year around the month of October, people from all over flock to Pretoria for the renowned Jacaranda Festival. During the festival the trees are in full bloom and the fragrant blossoms line the streets with a purplish hue. If you too enjoy the site and smell of spring why not join the locals of Pretoria in celebrating the full-swing of this beautiful season? You might be surprised by the abundance of feasts and activities that pop up after a long hibernation.

Whether you’re a wine connoisseur, a foodie, a culture buff or you’re just looking for something fun to do with the family, the Jacaranda festival has something for you. The atmosphere is set by the lively sounds of concerts and performances taking place all around you. Everywhere you go you will be met with the smell of freshly prepared meals as the eateries and pop-up shops pull out all the stops to entice and impress festival goers. If you take a stroll through the vibrant markets you will discover an endless source of refreshments, gifts, fresh produce, and fun activities for all ages.

With so many things to do and see, many people prefer to stay over for a night or two in order to get the most out of the Jacaranda Festival. It can be difficult to find a place that is close enough to the action, but far away enough to get some peace and quiet too. We think we have the perfect location at Mont d’Or Bohemian House and we'd like to invite you to experience it for yourself.

Our 5-star boutique guesthouse is situated in a quiet area surrounded by Jacarandas, not far from the festivities. Here you will be welcomed by our friendly staff and showed to your private room overlooking the secluded courtyard garden. After the day’s festivities you can relax amongst the trees or at the sparkling pool and if you need some help to unwind, let our in-house massage therapist come to your rescue with one of our fantastic spa treatments. After a good night’s rest in your uniquely decorated bohemian room and a scrumptious breakfast, you’ll be ready to face another day of festivities.

If this sounds like your kind of springtime festival, book a stay at Mont d'Or Bohemian House in Pretoria and join the vibrant Jacaranda Festival.
