Overview
Known as the “Jacaranda City" due to its mauve blossomed tree-lined streets, Pretoria is a quiet city in North Gauteng. It is one of the country's three capital cities, serving as the seat of the administrative branch of government. Pretoria was founded in 1855 by Marthinus Pretorius, a leader of the Voortrekkers, who named it after his father Andries Pretorius and chose a spot on the banks of the "Apies rivier" (Afrikaans for "Monkeys river") to be the new capital of the South African Republic (ZAR). We stop at the Voortrekker Monument located just south of Pretoria. This massive granite structure is prominently located on a hilltop, and was raised to commemorate the Voortrekkers who left the Cape Colony between 1835 and 1854. We pass the house of Paul Kruger and Church Square then head to,The Union Buildings which form the official seat of the South African Government and also house the offices of the President of South Africa.

The tour was excellently conducted. We were picked up at our b&b on time. It was a interesting introduction to life in South Africa especially the Vooktrekkers museum. Our guide Macy was knowledgeable and very instructive. Thank you Macy.
