Pretoria is the capital of South Africa and is a city steeped in the history of the Afrikaner Nation. Our tour of Pretoria will give you insight into the history and early European development of South Africa. The Voortrekker Monument is our starting point and traces the history of the early pioneers in their ox-wagons as they forged trails into the heart of what is now South Africa. We next visit the residence of President Paul Kruger which tells the story of the independence struggle against Imperial Britain. A short drive though the CBD and stop at the Union Buildings completes the tour.
A short visit to Soweto is an ideal add-on to this tour. This makes for a fascinating day of contrasts. The add-on does not include a visit to the Apartheid Museum.
