Loved it. The view is wonderful. The history is amazing. And you get a nice workout while visiting. Would be awesome if you could go at night!!

The size of this complex is overwhelming for an administrative capital building.
The grounds are well manicured and has a large statute of Nelson Mandela, which I think is the draw card.

Professional photographers can be found to take some interesting snap shots with the Madeba. One has negotiate the price of the photo shots before hand.

It worth a visit

Nice park surrounds the union buildings. This is a nice place to have a pic-nic or to chill out for a while

It was in the afternoon and just wanted some air and happened to passby, groups of people were exercising, some jogging around in groups and individually, seemed a very safe and relaxed place for a breather
