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.

When visiting the Pretoria area, the Voortrekker Monument should not be missed. I can strongly advise to either have a guide who explains it all or read about The Great Trek before coming to SA. This will give you perspective of the settlers moving out if the Cape into the inlands. The mural sculptures depict the history wich will probably be misunderstood if not supported by explanation or pre reading. A very interesting and nice place to visit.

Take your time & do get a guide to explain the story , as this adds to the experience , the lifts do have weight restrictions & in our case we went down to the basement instead of the top floor !!

A must visit if you are in Pretoria. Very interesting monument which shows the part played by the Voortrekkers in South African History.
Visitors can climb stairs or use the lift to go up to the top for beautiful views of Pretoria, "Jacaranda City."

This is a landmark still used for many occasions, from traditional to music festavils, etc. 16 December has its own glory with the sun falling at exactly 12:00 inside the church to be seen. They also have a garden where loved one's can be remembered.Beautiful view towards the city
