Kaalvoet Vrou & Piet Retief

Take a self guided tour to the Kaalvoet Vrou & Retiefklip monuments, the same route taken by Piet Retief’s group of 66 wagons while descending the Drakensberg on their way to Mgungundlovu in December 1837. 

The Kaalvoetvrou Monument commemorates Susanna Catharina Smit who is famous for saying that she would rather walk barefoot back across the Drakensberg than again have to live under British rule, she sadly passed before she made it out of Natal into the Berg. 

The Retiefklip monument is located on the farm Aberdeen, where Deborah Retief wrote her fathers name, on his birthday in 1837.
