This is one of the most revered sites in the city, and visiting it is a sobering experience. The park was built to commemorate all those who gave their lives in the formation of South Africa’s freedom. The park’s design draws inspiration from most South African influences. There’s a great 700-metre wall on which are inscribed the names of those who died in major South African conflicts. The freedom park museum offers a deep insight into South Africa’s formation, whether geological, cultural or political. It’ll take quite a while to cover the whole site.
Tourists who visit the place say that they leave feeling humbled. It’s a very touching experience. While you’re here, take note of the Isivivani, the Amphitheatre and the Eternal Flame. Even children come away quite affected by the place.

Freedom Park, Pretoria Reviews - Write a Review
South African Heritage build in to one prestigious memorial... In 1999 Nelson Mandela said “the day should not be far off when we shall have a people’s shrine, a freedom park, where we shall honour, with all the dignity they deserve, those who endured pain so we should experience the joy of freedom.”
Was an unbelievable experience - my tour guide was well informed on local history and culture and had the private to view the decolonization exhibition at the /hapo museum.
Amazing place to learn about South African history. Go early and with enough time. The place is. Great Indian site guide.
Huge area to explore. The museum could keep you busy half a day, and you can pack a picnic for relaxation on the Lawns at the top of the park. Lovely views. It was quiet and calm the Sunday we were there. Locals gets a discount on the entrance fee. I suggest the service the toilets at the ticket desk better, to fit with the rest of this world class museum.
Very well done, makes you think about your past in ways that you would not. Learnt a lot about South Africa that I did not know.
