Formerly part of the old Transvaal, since 1994, Gauteng is the smallest province in South Africa and includes Johannesburg and Pretoria.
It was one of the first military-type places I ever visited. I was 18 or 19 (1948-49) and at last I had a motorcycle that would go that far from Johannesburg… a Royal Enfield 125cc, 2-stroke. I expected a “Beau Geste” fort, so was rather disappointed. It is now a museum.

Video taken in 2000. This old fort has many guns on display. The panels show the names of men from more modern actions.
