Fort overlooking Pretoria, designed to defend against riots and raids on the city, but it is said, “never a shot was fired in anger from this fort.”

I visit this venue a few times a year and I'm pleased to note that it's improving on each visit. Good historical museum with a lot of factual information. It's usually quiet and I welcome the serenity whilst wandering the grounds.
