The views of Pretoria from the roof are well worth a visit. The lift goes to the roof so no need to climb the staircase! I feel the place falls a bit flat on involving tourists in the overall experience - it helps if you...More

You need to see this side of the hill and compare with Union building with Nelson Mandela on the other side to then appreciate the history of SA and the extent of Pretoria. Views of the city are amazing from the top of the monument....More

Our massive granite monument was built in honour of God and to commemorate the Voortrekkers - building started in 1937 and finished in December 1949. This incredible monument is part of our heritage and worth visiting.
