The Fort was one of several built to protect Pretoria. It is very well maintained, clean, safe and a great place to visit and learn. A very nice South African Military Weapons collection is displayed. The area is like a park and beautiful. Highly recommended.

We visited in a group, the Fort is very interesting, and you can go for walks and biking, it is safe and nice for outdoors loving people.

This fort gives an insight of how Pretoria was defended in former years. Visitors can look into different rooms with armour and medical equipment. Nice views over Pretoria. Good to combine with a visit to the Voortrekker Museum.

I didn't expect much of Fort Schanskop. We went there after a fair which was held on the grounds and we are so glad we did it. The museum is very well kept and the fort beautifully restored. Now and then they have small shows...More
