One of South Africa’s three state capitals and considered the capital city of South Africa is the city of Pretoria. It is the seat of the executive government. The others are Cape Town (legislative) and Bloemfontein (judicial). The city is renowned of its streets lined with Jacaranda trees which carpet the roads in mauve fallen flowers in spring each year.
Highlights on a day tour of Pretoria include visiting the Voortrekker Monument to learn about the history of the Afrikaans people in South Africa. Another attraction is the Union Buildings for their beautiful architecture by Sir Herbert Baker, it is the seat of the government in South Africa.
