This guided history tour includes stops at

Bastion House

Starting point

In the little hamlet of irene, lies the gem built from the stone unearthed from the ground on which this magnificent house was built.

Irene Farm


Irene Farm is the ultimate farm in the city – perfect for a family-friendly day out in Centurion. A picturesque gem that is nestled between the sprawling cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg, a visit to this old-style, storybook, working farm in the city is a must!

Smuts House (entrance fee included)

Stop - Tea and scones

The Smuts House Museum seeks to represent faithfully the life-style and multi-facetted career of one of South Africa's greatest sons, General J. C. Smuts, and to promote the holistic vision which he expounded in his life and writings.

Irene Concentration Camp (donation included)


Irene has received more attention than any other camp, for a number of reasons. Because it was located so close to Pretoria, it was under the eye of the senior camp authorities. The presence of a group of Boer women from Pretoria who nursed in the camp and who expressed themselves strongly on conditions there, at the time and later, gave it additional notoriety.

Interesting and historical stops throughout the village
