For the Personal Touch
Imagine the silence of the bush as you walk up the walls of a beautifully preserved meteor impact crater about 225,000 years old. Gaze across a spring-fed lake to the other wall about 1km away and imagine the energy needed to blast this hole in the earth. Observe the folding of the rock on the way out up the old salt mining road. Spend some time in the interpretation centre, and enjoy a picnic under the trees at the picnic site. This is one of the better preserved impact craters in the world, and is surrounded by a nature reserve. Various features are highlighted on the way up, and the interpretation centre is very informative. The walk will take 2-3 hours, depending on time spent along the way - it is about 7 km. After the walk and a stroll through the very informative information centre, we sit under shady trees and enjoy a picnic lunch. Pretoria, the administrative capital, is a bustling modern city, liberally sprinkled with historical buildings such as Paul Kruger's house, the Raadsaal, Melrose House, City Hall, the Transvaal Museum of Natural History and the Union Buildings, a magnificent example of the work of Sir Herbert Baker. These buildings are now the Presidency. The history of the city area predates European settlement and makes for interesting discussion. We wend our way through some of the suburbs, from high density flatlands to spread-out homes, older buildings to the most modern, until it's time to depart. Please remember - my speciality is customised tours. I will quote on a customised tour or amend itineraries to suit you.
