Living in Pretoria there is very little to see.....so we always struggle when guests come to find places to show them. The Union Buildings is a standard that we bring everyone to. It is a great spot to view the rest of Pretoria, especially during October when the Jacaranda's are out.

The freshly cut green lawns and the beautiful flowers make this spot great for romantic picnics or a day out with the family! And dont forget the awesome view of Pretoria!! Absolutely stunning!! Feel like a tourist in my own country!

A smaller replica of the buildings in India (arcihtect Sir Herbert Baker). Unlike those in Delhi, this is in fact just one building. The gardens are a pleasure and one has unimpeded views oner the city and surounding suburbs. Breathtaking when the Jararanda trees are in flower!
Parking a bit of a probem, but would like to go back for the views and gardens.

Always an imposing sight as one enters Pretoria - wonderful design and lots of history - featured in many movies.
