Half-day Tshwane tour (private excursion)


| May 15, 2020

The city of Tshwane, formerly known as Pretoria, lies just over 50km north of Johannesburg. This is South Africa's administrative capital, founded in 1855 and named after the Voortrekker leader, Andries Pretorius. Often referred to as Jacaranda City, this nickname refers to the thousands of trees lining the streets, their purple blossoms heralding the approach of summer each October. The tour begins with a visit to the Voortrekker Monument, a striking memorial built to honour the early pioneers. Continue to the central part of the city, which has retained the name of Pretoria, visiting Kruger House Museum and Church Square, where the statue of Paul Kruger looks down on passers by. Proceed to the imposing Union Building, which houses the offices of the state president, deputy president and minister of foreign affairs. This excursion can also be taken from Johannesburg.
