An interesting spot for a photo opportunity both for historical purposes and for the magnificent sea views. However, in flower season, this spot is not to be missed and definitely worth a stop if you are driving past.

We have so much history in our country and this particular monument should be of particular importance, but sadly it seems to be a bit neglected. There are broken glass bottles all over the surrounding ground. At least it seems to be fairly free of graffiti, but I can only assume that it must be a constant effort as the monument is very accessible at all times. Time to spend here - about 10 minutes.

They could do so much more with this place and history. We were disappointed as it is merely a marble cast with illegible writing carved out.

Wish they'd do more it could really be a worthwhile attraction.

This unfortunately is so typical of what happens to statues and monuments in South Africa.
If you want to see one that is not strewn with rubbish etc and completely intaked, go to the secure community of Shelley Point, just down the road from the Bon Hotel.
