A great place to visit. The history of Africaners is well captured by the murals, drawings and friezes with very clear descriptions. The view from the top is excellent. At least 2-3 hours are needed for proper tour if the minument.

A must to brush up on Voortrekker history, that are not being taught in school anymore. Antique lovers dream. If you are an “Afrikaner” it is a must visit. Not going to miss 16 December here ever. “Boer” artifacts like a time capsule, very interesting...More

The monument is not only massive but the architecture is something to write home about! The trip was with friends which made the space a little normal, beautiful artifacts inside,

This place tells you more about the white Afrikaner culture in South Africa and gives you a better idea about the history of white Afrikaans people.

Great day out in the City. Wonderful view of Pretoria with a history lesson thrown in. Have a Braai under the Thorn trees while Zebra walk right past. Take your mountain bikes and ride safely in the heart of the city.

It would be best to contact the Voortrekker Monument and get information from them about a tour in French. They could probably make arrangements for such a tour.

There are substantial grounds around the monument but I don't know if pets are allowed in the structure itself. Check the website on that issue.

If you are a history lover like myself, you find it worthwhile. It is a place that is well maintained at least and nice to visit. The monument itself is truly a huge monument and rich symbolism in the design with a museum... More
