About this location

The Gauteng region

The region had different names the past 150 years in true reflection of the political changes South Africa went through its foundation years. It started as the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek , which faced three attempts by outside forces to revert back to the British Empire. Attempt number 1 was done by Sir Theophilus Shepstone who annexed the ZAR in 1889. After negotiations by the Government of ZAR with the British Government to revoke this act of annexation, hostilities commenced between the ZAR and the British Government leading to the First Anglo Boer War. The ZAR won the war in a decisive battle at Majuba with the British Commander General Colley killed in action. The ZAR regained its independency but with some limitations.

In 1895 Leander Starr Jameson led the ill-famed Jameson attack to topple the ZAR government in the best spirit of ole jingo but it failed totally with Starr Jameson eniding in jail.

The third time was the Anglo Boer War, 1899 - 1902 with the Republics of the Orange Free State and the ZAR against the British Commonwealth. It ended on 31 May 1902 with the surrender at Vereeniging and the signing of the Peace Accord of Vereeniging at Melrose House in Pretoria. The ZAR ceased to exist.


Pretoria is the heart of South Africa with the Union Building (designed by Sir Herbert Baker) 10 kilometres from the Coral Tree House. The Wonderboom Fort, built by President Kruger in 1895 to protect Pretoria against a perceived attack by Great Britain is 2 kilometres from the Coral Tree House. It is located within a nature reserve, The Wonderboom Nature Reserve, which is also host to an ancient African fig tree (1400 years old according to carbon 14 dating) and one of the biggest on the African continent. The area is open to visitors with hiking trails up to Wonderboom Fort which allows for magnificent views of the northern plains.

Not far from us (30 kilometres) is the Dinokeng Natural Park (more than 150 000 hectares) with the big 5 in a non-malaria area. Its proximity to the Coral Tree House allows the visitor 1-day visits. Also close is the Cullinan Diamond Route (30 kms from us) where one can visit the mine (the Star of Africa was found here) and the mining village of Cullinan. The Coral Tree House is also close to other important places of interest such as Loftus Versfeld (rugby stadium - 10 kms), historic Church plain and Melrose House (10 km), the Voortrekker Monument and Freedom Park (15 kms)
