JC Smuts' home for over 40 years has been turned into an interesting museum. Surrounded by a wide verandah and shaded by trees, it has a family atmosphere and gives a vivid insight into Smuts’ life. If you’re travelling to/from Pretoria by car, it’s worth dropping in for a look. The house is signposted from both the N14 freeway (Rte 28) and Rte 21.

Scholar, Boer general, politician and international statesman JC Smuts was instrumental in creating the Union of South Africa, and served as prime minister from 1919 to 1924 and from 1939 to 1948.
