Owner description: The majestic Voortrekker Monument is situated in the northern part of South Africa in the Pretoria (Tshwane) region in a nature reserve. It is a unique Monument which commemorates the Pioneer history of Southern Africa and the history of the Afrikaner and is situated in a beautiful setting. Today it is the most visited heritage site of its kind in Gauteng and one of the top ten cultural historical visitor attractions in the country.

Visited on many occasions in the past. Did a number of weddings there, was superb. To mix your wedding with history, culture, beauty and excelence, is the best you kan ask for. However, presently everything must change, even this beaut of Africa

If you expect a one-sided rant about the Afrikaner, think again.

The museum offers a balanced history including the British, Zulu, Matabele and the many other players who made South Africa.

I cannot recommend it highly enough. Enjoy!

A gripping exhibition of the history of this country over the last 180 years. Some very interesting exhibits showing the everyday lives of people who participated in the Great Trek.

If you are interested in the history of the country, do not miss this. Well managed and informative. Spend at least a morning.
