Voortrekker Monument Tours

3 Reviews
Voortrekker Monument
The Voortrekker Monument stands proudly on top of a hill near Pretoria, dedicated to the thousands of Afrikaner settlers of inner South Africa in the mid-1800s. The huge granite monument was built from 1937-1949, and declared a National Heritage Site in 2011. It's 130 feet tall, and inside the structure is the Hall of Heroes. There, the main feature is a marble frieze with 27 panels showing historical moments of that trek into what is now the middle of South Africa.
 
In the center of the monument is the Cenotaph (an empty tomb) meant to honor all those who died during the difficult journey. There is also a wagon fort made of granite representing the fort of actual wagons assembled during the 1838 Battle of Blood River.

Practical Info

Half Day Pretoria City Tour - 4hrs

Known as the “Jacaranda City" due to its mauve blossomed tree-lined streets, Pretoria is a quiet city in North Gauteng. It is one of the country's three capital cities, serving as the seat of the administrative branch of government. Pretoria was founded in 1855 by Marthinus Pretorius, a leader of the Voortrekkers, who named it after his father Andries Pretorius and chose a spot on the banks of the "Apies rivier" (Afrikaans for "Monkeys river") to be the new capital of the South African Republic (ZAR). We stop at the Voortrekker Monument located just south of Pretoria. This massive granite structure is prominently located on a hilltop, and was raised to commemorate the Voortrekkers who left the Cape Colony between 1835 and 1854. We pass the house of Paul Kruger and Church Square then head to,The Union Buildings which form the official seat of the South African Government and also house the offices of the President of South Africa.
