    The Union Buildings is always impressive to see. Sadly ordinary visitors are not allowed anymore in the buildings. The gardens are looking well , but dry for this time in winter.Various monuments are there to be seen. Please note gardens are closed on weekends.

    Kindness Corporation an NPO runs a Youth Leadership Programme annually and on June 16th we do something special with the group. They had been learning about being entrepreneurs. Who better to use an example than Sammy himself! Joining the group was Jean Bwawa from the Righ2live foundation that looks after the interests of foreign nationals in the johannesburg area. He found a map on the wall showing where the different african tribes were from and used it to explain that Africa is a quagmire when it comes to migration and who originally comes from where! This was totally unexpected and a welcome surprise. The group enjoyed the background stories about the family and mentioned that they are rather privileged to have an actual relationship with their parents! There was one rather knee jerking surprise when visiting one of the upstairs room, there was a clean knocking sound from the wardrobe! We almost had heart attacks! It was explained that it was the plumbing that sometimes makes a noise. The group enjoyed the gardens and the aviary very much. Very much a gem and this venue can be used to relate to many themes for young people. Highly recommended.

    Very nice museum and ambiance. Food not very great (and took very long), rather have a scone and go see the museum.

    Enjoyed my short visit to the Fort - one of 4 built in Pretoria. It’s well maintained and neat. Sadly, none of the rooms were open to see the displays.
