This cache is large enough for small trackables, and is hidden in a lesser-known part of the gardens of the Union Buildings.

  • Cecil John Rhodes Cottage, Boschendal
  • Grey College, Bloemfontein

  • Rhodes University, Grahamstown
  • South African Institute for Medical Research, Johannesburg
  • St John's College, Johannesburg

With Edwin Lutyens he was instrumental in designing New Delhi.

His tomb is in Westminster Abbey.

Hierdie cache is groot genoeg vir geocoins, en is in 'n minder bekende deel van die tuine van die Uniegebou.

Sir Herbert Baker, die argitek van hierdie pragtige Uniegebou, was ook verantwoordelik vir 'n groot aantal ander bekende landmerke. Om 'n paar te noem:
