Full description
After morning pickup from your accommodation in Johannesburg or Pretoria, you’ll head out to the Lion Park. Your registered tour guide will take 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, including the rare white lion, among other carnivores like the cheetah, hyena, and wild dog. Afterwards, you’ll head in to Pretoria for a city tour. The capital of South Africa, Pretoria is home to a bevy of historic sites. Visit the Union Buildings, headquarters of the South African government, and wander through the beautifully terraced gardens. Then it’s off to the Voortrekker Monument, which commemorates the Great Trek, a mass movement of Afrikaner Boers who resented British rule. Next on the itinerary is the Paul Kruger House Museum, which showcases artifacts related to Paul Kruger, the 3rd president of South Africa from 1883-1900. Before the tour ends, you’ll view some of the architectural standouts of the city, like the Ou Raadsaal, Palace of Justice, and Capital Theater. Afterwards, you’ll be driven back to your accommodation, having seen the urban and rural highlights of a vibrant capital city.

Eric was the best guide and a super pleasant driver. He gave me a great day, gave a lot of interesting information about the city and gave me a lot of support. The safari at the Lion Park was also very interesting. The driver told us a lot about the different animals and of course it was amazing to be so close to the animals.

Fantastic day with the balance between the historical sites of Pretoria & the amazing animals at the lion park. My guide Thabang from MoAfrika Tours was exceptional and imparted his knowledge of Pretoria & South Africa. Well organised. Pick up & drop off to motel in Pretoria. Comfortable vehicle with wifi.
