 Overview
 Description
A big fort with a rich history in the middle of Pretoria. Absolutely no risks, just pay your R25 ($2) entrance fee. This is a great place. The fort itself is not very famous, but the reserve is because of 1000-year old wild fig tree, where the name Wonderboom (wonder tree) comes from. On the other side of the mountain, just a 30 minute hike from the entrance, there is also an unknown cave. Not very big, but interesting. Ancient tools have been found there, and it possibly one of the sites where the Ndebeles hid from the Boers.

No point in me giving you more details here since it can all be found online.

Just Google it.
