Tour Description

Drive through the administrative capital of South Africa to the Union Buildings, Kruger House Museum and the Voortrekker Monument.

The Kruger house is a house museum, i.e. it attempts to recreate the ambience of a historic period, event or person. The house has been refurbished to look almost as it did at the time when President Paul and Mrs Gezina Kruger's lived there.

An almost total historic environment has been recreated. Visitors to Kruger House should feel as though the President or Mrs Kruger might return at any moment. The furnishing plan has been based on a thorough study of the available evidence of original furnishings. In accordance with this several changes have recently been made to the interior, not as a curatorial whim, but with a view to give the visitor a more accurate conception of the life style of the Kruger’s.

The majestic Voortrekker Monument is situated in the northern part of South Africa in the Pretoria (Tshwane) region in a nature reserve. It is a unique Monument which commemorates the Pioneer history of Southern Africa and the history of the Afrikaner and is situated in a beautiful setting. Today it is the most visited heritage site of its kind in Gauteng and one of the top ten cultural historical visitor attractions in the country.

The Union Buildings were designed by Sir Herbert Baker and are considered to be one of the country's finest architectural masterpieces. They were the setting for President Mandela’s historic inauguration on 10 May 1994. The beautifully landscaped grounds are open to the public, including features such as the amphitheatre, the Garden of Remembrance and the Delville Wood memorial.
