Take a trip to Tshwane on South Africa holidays

Tourists heading to Johannesburg might like to consider visiting the capital city of Tshwane, as it is home to one particularly colourful sight.

Many thousands of Jacaranda trees can be found in the city and those going on South Africa holidays in October could see them blossoming. 

First, visitors might like to take a trip to Church Square, which was originally a farmers' market. There, Anton Van Wouw's statue of former president Paul Kruger can be admired. 

Buildings that surround the plaza include the Palace of Justice – which was the scene of Nelson Mandela's trial – and the Capital Theatre.

Those seeking to find out more about the city's heritage may also like to stop at the Natural Cultural History Museum on Visagie Street. It gives visitors a chance to explore South Africa's past. Of particular note is the Reach for the stars exhibit, where people can learn about the evolution of space travel.
