Home of General J. C. Smuts, the Jan Smuts House Museum speaks on behalf of his variegated and versatile career. Commemorating Guy Brathwaite, who saved the house from being a sanatorium, the Place Of Quiet will offer you sublime peace, serenity and you can spend your “own” time here. You can take the 2.3 kilometre Oubaas Trail to explore the virgin dolomite grasslands of Gauteng before reaching Smuts Koppie where the obelisk commemorates the Smuts family. You will find a number of plants and animals like Small Antelope and the endangered Fruit Chafer Beetle. The Arboretum with its exotic and indigenous trees and wildflowers are home to a plethora of birds and butterflies. Enjoy tea, scones and lunch at Ouma’s Tea Garden of Jan Smuts House Museum.
