Once known as Doornkloof, Smut’s home for over 40 years has been turned into an interesting museum . If you’re travelling to/from Pretoria by car, it’s worth dropping in for a look. The wood-and-iron building was a British officers’ mess at Middelburg, but Smuts bought it and re-erected it on his 1600-hectare property at Irene, 16km south of Pretoria. Surrounded by a wide verandah and shaded by trees, it has a family atmosphere and gives a vivid insight into Smuts’ life.
