SA has a strong history and one should not change that but rather built on that. It is not what happened in the past that makes us strong, it is how we use that in our future.

The Voortrekker Monument is monument devoted to the pioneers that moved from the Cape Province to the inland. It contains many historical items and is well worth a visit

I've never seen this in my life. A monument built of granite stone and a monument situated in a proclaimed nature reserve with game so close to Pretoria. A "must see" whenever visiting Pretoria. But be warned, make time to visit this place!
