Inaugurated on December 16 1949, the Voortrekker Monument was built to honour the Voortrekkers or pioneers who sought liberation from the British and embarked on a journey into the interior of southern Africa called the Great Trek. The biggest monument in Africa, this magnificent, 41 meter tall monolith south of Pretoria is a cultural icon and the pride of the Afrikaner people.
