I took my 17 year old son to see this old monument. Always good to look back at history. He was fascinated with the building. It is well looked after. Neat and tidy. Definitely worth a visit.

The first place we visited after arriving in South Africa and it was a good choice. Great views from the top (there is a lift) also wonderful tapestry in the basement. Not to be missed. Cafe was good too.

The monument is a large stone building lined with interesting reliefs which are not particularly well done from an artistic point of view. The reliefs depict the great trek (the journey the early European settlers made into the interior of the country in convoys of ox wagons).

Took two teenage boys on a sight seeing trip which included the Monument. They especially enjoyed the steps right to the top!

Really enjoyed the monument however it needs a bit of an update and maintenance. Would suggest it to all visitors to our country to see both sides of the History.
