Under $100 / Africa

For all intents and purposes, Pretoria is the true capital of South Africa. Pretoria functions as the administrative center of the country. Pretoria is located in the northern part of the country, a fair distance from Cape Town.

 

It is possible to see the town, eat well and take in the local culture without going broke. Start off with a visit to Blos Café. The café’s breakfast menu is varied and affordable. You can get a whole big breakfast for less than $10.

 

After breakfast, it’s time for some sightseeing. The first item on our list is the Union Building. The Union Building is the seat of South African government. Over the years, it has become one of the most popular tourist spots in the city. You can enter the buildings for free.

 

For lunch, another café with great food is on the agenda. Café Beyritz offers a great lunch menu. The most expensive item on the menu is still cheaper than $10. Dig in and enjoy, and get ready for a full afternoon.

 

If the weather is nice, this is a great time to visit the Pretoria National Botanical Garden. The garden is one of nine national gardens in South Africa. There are many different tours visitors can take, including through the biodiversity center and grassland environment. You can get a ticket to the garden for about $2.50.

 

For dinner, you should go to one of Pretoria’s best restaurants. Black Bamboo Restaurant is a fine-dining option where reservations are required. It is surprisingly affordable, however, with most entrees coming in at less than $20.

 

For a late-night snack and drink, head to the Culture Club. This tapas bar has excellent drinks and an affordable menu.

Leak-Proof Silicone Bottles for Liquids

It doesn’t matter which bottles you use for transporting liquids when you travel, just so long as they meet Transportation Security Administration regulations, right? Wrong. Not all travel-sized liquid containers are the same. For example, cheap plastic bottles may explode in flight, leaving you with stained and damaged clothes and a mess to clean up. Rather than scrimping on below-par bottles for your carry-on liquids, invest a bit of extra money in bottles you’ll actually look forward to using and that won’t require laborious attempts at cleaning out every last drop of your product.
