Enjoy a tour of the administrative capital of South Africa. Pretoria / Tshwane lie about 50 km north of Johannesburg. The population is just under a million and consists mainly of government officials and other related government personnel.

In Pretoria, life goes at a much slower pace than in the hectic Johannesburg and it is quite easy for the visitor to find his or her way through the city, which is laid out like a chess board. Pretoria lies 1367 m above sea level, which makes it about 400 m lower than Johannesburg. It is surrounded by protecting mountains and is home to the magnificent Union Buildings.

Pretoria is home to many fascinating museums and monument. As the capital of the country for over 100 years it is strewn with many official buildings and memorials dating back to the early 1900’s.

The majestic Voortrekker Monument situated south of Pretoria in a nature reserve. It is a unique Monument which commemorates the Pioneer history of Southern Africa and the history of the Afrikaner. 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. This Monument also manages the Heritage Foundation and various other monuments and cultural historical sites country-wide.

Kruger House is the historical Pretoria residence of the Boer leader and President of the first South African Republic, Paul Kruger. It was built in 1884 by architect Tom Claridge and builder Charles Clark. Milk was used, instead of water, for mixing the cement from which the house was constructed, as the cement available was of poor quality.

Well with the new Government things are daily changing drastically, be aware to explore new statues of the African history, while they feel the White British and Boere history don't fit the country's proud.

Statues that part of the nation wants to be removed include, Paul Kruger, Martinus Wessel Pretorius and Louis Botha. Will it be replace by a Statue of country's president Jacob Zuma, Tabo Mabeki or Julius Malemma?
