This is probably one of most important memorials for Mozambique and South Africa. Such an important part of history. This monument is better maintained then Monuments in South Africa. Taking in consideration that Marxist Mozambique at one stage was at war with capitalist South Africa.......More

Although locked when I visited, you can easily see the entire memorial from the street. It's not so much a garden as a memorial. There is a great mosaic, some interesting statues, and an overall feeling of history. A quick stop but a good one.

The memorial garden is a small place of interest to mostly South Africans. It is just sorry that is not very well looked after.

This memorial resembles Louis Tregardt. It's a small but cozy place to visit. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. The place itself looks tidy and clean. Shame that the small "lakes" surround the central memoir only had rain showers. It should be filled with...More

Ironic that this memorial to a Boer Voortrekker has survived so well in central Maputo. It is easy to find and informative.

This impressive monument is hidden away on Av. Josina Machel about 100 metres from Independence Square. Well-maintained, except for the fountain no longer working, the oddest thing is that it still exists. The monument celebrates the Voortrekkers expedition, heros foe colonialists, but an odd celebration...More
