Visited 'on the way' somewhere else but what a gem. The house where he actually lived, not stayed at one night in 1899. Faithfully kept as it was then and the house is surpassed by the trove of other items at the rear of the property. Not least his railway carriage !!! Give it a go, its great.

This was an exciting first visit to presidential residence. I see alot of modesty in the way the President Kruger lived. This is indeed a good example for our leaders today.

The President's House has been turned into a museum, which helps to tell the story of the Republic of South Africa. Kruger was a much revered politician and he was instrumental in establishing Kruger National Park. We should be thankful for this legacy. The displays in the museum vary in quality and some of the exhibits are incomplete (our guide... More
