I have chosen the Wall of rememberance on the Voortrekker Monument grounds as my final resting place and am proud of the beautifully kept reserve. For visitors keen on history this is a must see Monument when in Pretoria.

Clean and solid history in stone. Needs support as it seems no assistance from other sources. Pleasant outing

Perfect hills for cycling or running training. It’s a safe environment. Just arrive with your bikes (Mtb or road), or running shoes. Pay at the gate, enter, park and enjoy your training. It’s safe, secure and has great hills for training.

I'd suggest this is an important place to visit if you want to better understand SA's history. The carved friezes tell the story of the Voortrekkers and various interpretation boards add context and explanation. There is a museum of artefacts in the basement. As you'd...More
