For a perfect cultural and wildlife experience in South Africa, we have created the Lion Park and Pretoria Tour.
In the morning we head out to the Lion Park. Our registered tour guide takes you on a tour through the Lion Park, a natural habitat only 45 minutes drive from Johannesburg. The park is home to more than 85 lions and other carnivores like the cheetah, hyena and wild dog.
Lion Park is home to the rare white lion, so make sure you bring your camera for some exclusive shots. At Cub World you can cuddle baby lions, how cute is that? And when you are not frightened by tall animals with long necks, you can also feed the giraffes and ostriches!
We continue our tour with a Pretoria city experience. Pretoria is the capital of South Africa and therefore full of historic sites. We visit the Union Buildings, headquarters of the government. The buildings are beautifully situated in terraced gardens, trough which you can enjoy an idyllic walk.
Another major attraction on this tour is the Voortrekker Monument. This monument is of great significance to many Afrikaans speaking South Africans, there it stands for Afrikaner Nationalism. The monument is in the shape of a big stone cube. The interior walls depict the story of the Great Trek, a mass movement of Afrikaner Boers who resented British rule.
Next interesting site on our tour is the Paul Kruger House Museum. Kruger National Park is named after Paul Kruger. Learn more about this fascinating man and his life. The house displays furniture and personal items of the Kruger family.
Pretoria has character in its buildings and during this city architecture tour you will be given ample opportunity to ask your guide about the history behind the buildings and culture. We visit Church Square with prominent buildings like the Ou Raadsaal, Palace of Justice and Capital Theatre.
