Get your camera ready for this leisurely afternoon trip to South Africa's administrative capital. See the imposing Union Buildings, the presidential residence, the massive Voortrekker Monument, and the historic Kruger House. Visit the charming downtown with its stately buildings and lush parks.
Begin your tour of historic monuments at the 19th century mansion that houses the Paul Kruger Museum. The historic home of president Kruger contains furnishings from the era of the Transvaal Republic. Continue to another Afrikaner landmark, the mighty Voortrekker Monument. This huge granite structure commemorates the Voortrekkers, who left the British Cape Colony and settled in the interior of present day South Africa.
Your next stop is the Union Buildings, a sweeping sandstone complex that serves as the official seat of the South African government and contains the offices of the president. In the gardens, enjoy panoramic views of downtown from atop Meintjieskop.
While driving to Church Square in downtown, you can see firsthand why Pretoria is considered one of the prettiest cities in Africa. Dignified buildings, well-manicured parks, and pleasant pedestrian zones teeming with boutiques and cafés contribute to its powerful sense of grandeur. Take a pleasant stroll through the charming streets and soak up the laid-back atmosphere. During October or November, you can also witness the marvelous jacaranda trees in full bloom.
