Polokwane – Place of Safety

Polokwane is the capitol of the Limpopo Province and the largest urban centre north of Gauteng. In the 1840’s Voortrekkers under the leadership of Andries Potgieter established Zoutpansbergdorp.
 
A town 100km to the North West. This settlement was abandoned because of clashes with the local tribes. They then founded a new town in 1886 and it Pietersburg, in honour of Petrus Jacobus Joubert, a Voortrekker leader. The British also built a concentration camp at Pietersburg during the Boer War that housed almost 4000 Boer women and children.
