Although locked when I visited, you can easily see the entire memorial from the street. It's not so much a garden as a memorial. There is a great mosaic, some interesting statues, and an overall feeling of history. A quick stop but a good one.

Monument to The Great Trek. It is hidden in Maputo but very well kept as it is recognized as a valuable piece of the history of the city. There isn't much to see but it is always nice to find a piece of history that is kept so that we don't forget.

The memorial garden is a small place of interest to mostly South Africans. It is just sorry that is not very well looked after.

It will not take much of your time, only about 20 minutes if you read everything carefully and you will learn something. It is interesting and the place is clean, makes a good photography spot on a sunny day, surrounded by old buildings. Visit if you have the time, do not expect grandeur, but some history.

This memorial resembles Louis Tregardt. It's a small but cozy place to visit. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. The place itself looks tidy and clean. Shame that the small "lakes" surround the central memoir only had rain showers. It should be filled with water.

I live in Maputo and didn't even know this existed, how embarrassing! this is actually a cemetery of Louis Tregardt, in the center of this memorial there is a Map of how he reached maputo by accident because he was trying to reach South Africa. I suggest you go with a guide.

Ironic that this memorial to a Boer Voortrekker has survived so well in central Maputo. It is easy to find and informative.

This impressive monument is hidden away on Av. Josina Machel about 100 metres from Independence Square. Well-maintained, except for the fountain no longer working, the oddest thing is that it still exists. The monument celebrates the Voortrekkers expedition, heros foe colonialists, but an odd celebration in independent Mozambique. Get good information on the site on the MozambicanHotels website
