The Union Buildings in Pretoria will be the backdrop for the venue. They are the official seat of the South African government and also house the offices of the president of South Africa. The buildings, designed by Sir Herbert Baker and completed 100 years ago in 1913, occupy the highest point in Pretoria and constitute a South African national heritage site.
Pretoria is a city in the northern part of Gauteng Province, South Africa. It is one of the country's three capital cities, serving as the executive (administrative) and de facto national capital; the others are Cape Town, the legislative capital, and Bloemfontein, the judicial capital.Pretoria is divided into three sections: pretoria west, east and north. Pretoria is contained within the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality as one of several constituent former administrations (among which also Centurion and Soshanguve).
Pretoria itself is sometimes referred to as "Tshwane" due to a long-running and controversial proposed change of name, which has yet to be decided, as of 2012.
