The Voortrekker Monument Pretoria stands over 40 meters tall on its hilltop home and is visible from a large part of Pretoria. The monument was built in honor of the Voortrekkers (Pioneers) who left the Cape colony between 1835 and 1854.
Gerard Moerdijk was the architect and it was his ideal to design a monument that would stand a thousand years to describe the history and meaning of the Great Trek to its descendants.
Two elements make the site worth visiting: The Historical Frieze and The Cenotaph Hall.
These will be the first stop on our Half Day Pretoria City Tour, and we will spend about 1hr 30 Minutes on these Monument.
