Another attraction worthy of a visit if you like South African History. My tip is not to forget to walk through the separate area at the back that displays the gifts oom Paul received from other heads of state, that was the most impressive part of the house for me. The building and garden is really well kept and clean.

Very sparse info and just a leaflet to help. No one else there when I visited. Lots of staff doing nothing. Perhaps a better leaflet or a trained guide.

Paul Kruger was a very interesting person but had the interests of people at heart including those of other races not only Afrikaners. He was perhaps known for the fact that he was raised whilst the Afrikaners were moving through the country and thus had no formal schooling. That made him a grass roots level President per excellence who based... More

When one enters this house it feels as if you can expect the president to walk in any minute. Being one of the presidents of the old republic, later banned, one can imagine the meeting that took place here.
