About Fort Klapperkop

Situated in Groenkloof in Pretoria is the very majestic and magnificent Fort Klapperkop. Now restored to its original state, this fort is one of the best examples of the 19th century weaponry defenses in the world. It has an abnormal German style dry moat and was built in 1986 before the start of the second Anglo-Boer war. This outstanding fort houses an incredible museum displaying artifacts, rifles and furniture found and used during the war.

You will be amazed at the steam locomotive which was used back then to transfer troops, the duplication of the long tom gun used and the last tram used in Pretoria. The memorial is very touching and is dedicated to those who gave their lives serving in the South African Defence force to protect their country.

The views from Klapperkop are breathtaking and you will often find people using this rough terrain for mountain biking and hiking.
