Ancient mountains and historical landmarks

Spend a full day exploring Magaliesburg and Pretoria from R4 004 (approx. € 244,74) per person.

Nelson Mandela Statue

Voortrekker Monument

After an early start, we travel to the Magaliesberg Biosphere Reserve to explore one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world, thought to be over 2500 million years old. Here we meander through the ecosystem by a lattice of overhead cables zigzagging through this beautiful tree top canopy, with breathtaking views of the kloof. After about 3 hours of being in nature, we depart for Pretoria, also called The Jacaranda City for the thousands of Jacaranda trees which line its streets during Spring and transform the city into a purple wonderland. We visit the Union Buildings, designed by the famous British architect Sir Herbert Baker and regarded as one of the countries architectural masterpieces. We also visit the Voortrekker Monument, which bears testament to a people's pioneering spirit, before visiting Melrose House, the location where the Anglo Boer War officially ended with the signing of the peace treaty of Vereeniging in 1902. We then return to our hotel in Johannesburg after an invigorating day.
