The reserve is rich with animal, bird and plant species. Hiking and quad biking with knowledgeable guides provides a deeper perspective on both the historic as well as natural aspects of the monument and surrounds. A visit to the Voortrekker Monument is an energetic as well as edifying outing for the whole family and a must-do for visitors to Gauteng Province.
