A visit to the Voortrekker Monument includes a guided tour through the Voortrekker Monument with its beautiful freezes, a visit to the Heritage Centre, Pioneer Centre and Living Laager where the learners will see the baking of bread and also learn about the 'Groot Trek' while they are playing.
The Voortrekker Monument, designed by Gerard Moerdyk, comprises huge figures of the Great Trek leaders on the four corners. The Monument is surrounded by a laager of life-size ox-wagons. The freeze on the inside of the Voortrekker Monument tells the story of the Voortrekkers. There is also a Voortrekker museum. Fort Schanskop, one of the four fords build after the Jamison Rades in 1896, commissioned by Paul Kruger was completed in 1897. Fords are build to protect Pretoria from their enemies.
