If you want to see why they call Pretoria the Jacaranda City, you have to visit the Union Buildings during the middle of October when the Jacaranda's are at their peak. The view of the city is great and the Union Building's garden's is a must.

Part of SA's history. Good site for tourists, excellent view over the city of Pretoria. Unfortunately closed to the public.

Lovely place for a picnic, a romantic stroll or just to admire immaculate gardens and a commanding view of the city but away from the busyness and noise.

The gardens at the Union buildings are beautiful and popular for wedding photos. The view over Pretoria is spectacular.
