Full description
On this half day tour, you will learn about the fascinating history of South Africa during a Pretoria city experience. Pretoria is the capital of South Africa and full of historic sites like the Union Buildings, headquarters of the government. The buildings are beautifully situated in terraced gardens, through which you can enjoy an idyllic walk. Enjoy a visit to the Voortrekker Monument, a monument of great significance to many Afrikaans-speaking South Africans because it stands for Afrikaner Nationalism. The interior walls depict the story of the Great Trek, a mass movement of Afrikaner Boers who resented British rule. Next, you can visit the Paul Kruger House Museum where you can learn more about this fascinating man and his life. The house displays furniture and personal items of the Kruger family. Pretoria has character in its buildings and during this city architecture tour, you will be given ample opportunity to ask your guide about the history behind the buildings and culture. Visit Church Square, the Ou Raadsaal, Palace of Justice and Capital Theatre.

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.
