Pretoria is positioned near the 26 southern latitude. For comparison: New York's latitude is 40th in the north, having a much longer distance to the equator.
With up to 13:50 hours the longest days are in Dezember. In Juni a night in Pretoria lasts almost 14 hours.
In these days the sun in Pretoria rises at 5:45. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 18:08 Uhr in the early evening.Back to overview: South Africa
