As we asked a friend for a good location to make good panorama pictures of Jacaranda Blooming in Pretoria he recommended us to drive up to Fort Klapperkop. So we did and did not regret it. You get a nice Panoramic view over the city. The fort itself is also worth visiting. Everything is wel kept and maintained. Nice place to have pick-nick too.

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 per pensioner and less for kids. If you decide not to drive in, no turning circle so quite a battle to turn around. I did not see the Museum so cannot comment, but, I remember it being very informative.

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.
