Pretoria is known as the Jacaranda City because of the magnificent display of blooming jacaranda trees every spring which carpet the streets in purple. It is also the administrative capital of South Africa and houses the Union Buildings, the official office of the President. These imposing sandstone buildings are notable for their terraced gardens planted with exclusively indigenous plants.

Pretoria is informally known as „the Jacaranda City‟, for its beautiful purple lined streets when the jacaranda trees are in full bloom. Take this opportunity to stand in front of the heart of the country overlooking a city built on passion and determination, where buildings are architecturally significant and a nation congregates around statues of past leaders. Highlights include Paul Kruger House, Church Square, Voortrekker Monument, Union Buildings and City Hall.
