Stumbled upon this monument when I visited the Camdeboo National Park. I was surprised to see one of the Voortrekker monuments in the Karoo. Very few of them survive. The monument is in a good condition, but the area around it is very sandy and...More

This monument is situated just inside Camdeboo Nature Reserve - it was moved here for safe keeping. I am not a great monument enthusiast, but this is a particularly attractive statue with An dries in his top hat gazing into the hinterland.

This original homestead that looks interesting from the road, is being turned into a guest house and we could not access the museum.

Worth stopping to see this monument if you are into SA history. Pity it had to be moved from its original location due to vandalism

The Andries Pretorius Monument, previously sadly neglected, has been moved to the Offide building of the Camdeboo National Park. This is at the north entrance of the Park, about 5km north of Graaff-Reinet on the road to Middelburg. The new situation of the monument is...More
