Situated in a Pretoria nature reserve, the Voortrekker Monument marks the significance of the Afrikaner influence on South African identity, and modern formation of the country.

The Voortrekkers (fore-trekkers) were those who migrated from the Cape-Colony into the heart of what is now South Africa. 40 metres high, the monument stands grandly over the city. It combines the influences of European architecture and monuments, but also has clear African inspiration, mirroring the combination of Dutch and African culture in today's South Africa.

The monument evokes the history of the Voortrekkers and their journey, celebrating the progress they made and also displays a copy of the 'Trekker Vow', which is the land-deal made between the Trekkers and the Zulus.

A visit here will provide a notion of South African history from a different viewpoint to the apartheid monuments and museums that the city also has to offer.

Opening Times:

Monday - Sunday: 8am - 4pm
