Upon collection from your hotel, you will receive a pre-departure briefing
from your personal tour guide before departing for Pretoria.

Our first stop is the massive granite structure of the Voortrekker
Monument. Situated prominently on a hilltop, it commemorates the
Voortrekkers – explorers who left the Cape Colony in search of new
opportunity between 1835 and 1854.

Another hilltop site awaits in the form of Freedom Park. Beautiful views
and award-winning architecture house a memorial which lists the names of
South Africans who died in the first and second world wars, as well as the
apartheid era. Next, we visit Paul Kruger Museum, which is the historical
residence of Boer leader and South African president Paul Kruger.

We find the historical city centre at Church Square, where the first church
was built in 1855 before our final stop at the Union Buildings. The
imposing building that houses the official seat of government was designed
by renowned architect Sir Herbert Baker.

Your guide will return you to your hotel at the end of the tour.
