Amazing tourist attraction. Discounts offered to students and pensioners. Every South African should see this land mark. There is only one item that is not historically correct: the colours on the "Transvaal" flag AKA "Die vierkleur" are wrong. The green should be in the vertical...More

It was a good experience, enjoyed it, impressive building, good maintenance, and the history is quite amazing. Also other activities on the premises, like a visit at Fort Schanskop and horse riding

I had a knowledgeable guide with me to explain the whole trek. The 27 stone panels inside give the story of the trek, and there is a small museum on the lower level. The grounds are well maintained. I also enjoyed the restaurant that was...More
