The South African government is located in a beautiful building, in the top of a hill where it is possible to see the skyline of the city. Essential for Pretoria.

This is a wonderful spot to visit and provides a nice view of the city of Pretoria. The Mandela statue is a great reminder of the social and political changes in South Africa.

They’re beautiful! You get to see a mini skyline of Pretoria and some cool statues. People also go there in the evening to exercise so you can do that as well. You can also buy some African things there from various ladies and gentlemen.
