The University of Pretoria has several campuses spread across the greater Tshwane area. The University’s sprawling sport facilities are located on the Sport Campus, also known as LC de Villiers. The grounds are home to TuksSport, the body that organises and manages all the University of Pretoria’s sport development, teams, training and performance, as well as the UP’s High Performance Centre, HPC, a word-class elite performance sports facility. The Institute for Sport Research also calls the campus home. The grounds border the men’s residences on the south-eastern side of the lake. The Rautenbach Hall, the biggest single events venue at the University of Pretoria, can also be found on the Sport Campus. Not only is the campus home to a top class rugby, athletics and soccer stadiums, tennis courts, hockey fields, swimming pool and other tracks and fields, but it also has support facilities such as gyms, class rooms and research laboratories.

Questa è una vista generale di Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.

The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.

Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.

In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.
