Union Buildings:

Voortrekker Monument:

The Pioneer history of South Africa is fascinating, so make sure that you learn more by stopping at the Voortrekker Monument, which is just a short distance away from the Union Buildings. The monument is considered as one of the top cultural attractions in the country, which makes it a must for visitors both young and old.

Loftus Versfeld:
