The N4 Highway - Part 1 - From Maputo to Pretoria. So many elements of our history!
Show Notes

This is a unique route to travel. It is special because so many elements of our history can be explored while driving this highway. It stretches from Maputo - actually Komatipoort which is the South African border - right through to the border with Botswana.

You can visit San rock art, there is is an interesting link with Jan van Riebeeck, there are Voortrekker sites, you can visit sites relating to both the 1st and 2nd Anglo-Boer Wars, there's WW1 and WW2, there's then 1914 Rebellion, there's Struggle sites - they variety is amazing. And there is fascinating piece of history as well - most people know of the Voortrekker Covenant before the Battle of Blood River in 1838 - but did you know there were two more Covenants made?
