We were picked up neatly at 1.30 pm from our hotel in Pretoria in a well-maintained van with a very nice driver named Sunny, to be the first to drive to the Voortrekkersmuseum because of the many traffic lights and it gets busier later during rush hour. Very interesting and well explained the history of the pioneers. Then the Kruger House, the first president of the Union of South Africa. Then the Union Building, an impressive building with a beautiful park where there is a statue of Nelson Mandela. He also showed us the Jacaranda blossom, but not yet fully in purple bloom.
