Good if you know history. Average if you have seen more than one. Not a historian therefore once seen OK. All such places to me is a must to visit once but do not expect whoooooow.

Please go in large groups no valuables and no flashy bling. Stay in the group and do not venture on your own. Do not go there outside of hours

The views from the top of fort Klapperkop is amazing and the museum is worth a visit. Unfortunately the area is a bit unsafe with frequent incidents of robbery and assault but it is something they are working on improving. The drive up to the...More

A total disappointment. We could only walk through the dirty and neglected gardens. There were no refreshments available. No toilets open to be used and the all the rubbish bins were full.

I found the fort a little underwhelming. Fantastic view over Pretoria was a bonus but the Fort and museum itself was only average. If you have time and are interested in Boar War history go.

Just a warning to visitors, that, unlike the good old days, one has to pay to drive into Fort Klapperkop these days. Tried to drive in to show some out of towners and there is a boom and one does pay. R25 per adult, R12...More

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.

Over the past few years the area has become quite unsafe at night. The road was also horrible! However recently we went to look at the city lights. The road was brand new and the whole area was better looked after. This made us feel...More
