The Voortrekker Monument was built to commemorate the Great Trek from the Cape of Good Hope into the interior of South Africa from 1835 to 1852. 1938. from the top of the monument you can enjoy panoramic views of the city bowl. Ted will also show you the landmarks of the earth when it was still verry young before there were living organisms and tell you about the catalymitic events that shaped the ancient land and brought forth South Africa's abundant mineral wealth of gold, platimum and daimonds.
The Union Buildings are the administrative headquarters of the government and stand majestically on Meintjieskop, overlooking Pretoria. This magnificent, crescent shaped red sandstone edifice looks over the city from the heights of Meintjes Kop, from where there are panoramic views. Features of note are the statues, the Garden of Remembrance, the Delville Wood memorial and the Pretoria war memorial. It is here that President Mandela was inaugurated in 1994.
