Two Cities Tour

Posted on: September 17th, 2018 by admin No Comments

Pretoria City Tour, visit the Voortrekker Monument, where the history of the early white pioneers in the interior of the country is depicted on marble friezes, we continue our journey through history and visit the Kruger House Museum, where the worldwide moral support for the Transvaal Republic during the Anglo-Boer War can be seen. We also visit Church Square, with the old Parliament building, the Palace of Justice and Paul Kruger’s statue (commissioned by Sammy Marks). From there we drive past the Transvaal Museum, the City Hall and Melrose House (where the peace treaty of Vereniging ending the Anglo-Boer War was signed. We conclude this tour with a visit to the Union Buildings.

Drive-By of Johannesburg, the discovery of this enchanting mineral hidden below the plains of the highveld sparked off one of the fastest urban developments of the modern era. In just over a century, the ramshackle congregation of prospectors’ tents and crude digging devices near the farm of Langlaagte has spread for more than 30 kilometres in each direction into a metropolis of skyscrapers. The Johannesburg of today is a modern version of its inauspicious but frantic beginnings. It is the technological and financial forerunner of Africa, South Africa’s pemier business destination and home, including Soweto, to more than five million people. Built on and maintained by the ancient ground it covers, Johannesburg is the prince of the subcontinent.

Visit Constitution Hill & Drive By Johannesburg is home to the Constitutional Court, the protector of our basic rights of freedom. It is also the site of Johannesburg’s notorious Old Fort Prison Complex, commonly known as Number Four. Thousands of ordinary people were brutally punished here before the dawn of democracy in 1994.

Segregation is exactly where it belongs – in a museum – the Apartheids Museum and Drive By Johannesburg. The basic principle behind Apartheid was simple – segregate everything. Cut a clean line through a nation to divide black from white and keep them divided. The Apartheids Museum communicates this by using the dark images, sounds and atmosphere prevalent in that troubled era.

Lion Park

Posted on: August 20th, 2018 by admin No Comments

The Lion Park is a truly unique venue. Play and have your photo taken with various cubs (if available) in an enclosed area – definitely a memorable experience. The park is not intended to be a game reserve, nor does it fall within the definition of a zoo. The idea is to have indigenous animals moving around as freely as possible in a natural environment, with visitors being able to come as close to them as possible, affording one the opportunity to view and photograph them at close quarters from the comfort an enclosed game viewing vehicle.
