About Shelter Rock
The Shelter Rock is visible for many kilometers on the southern slopes of the Magaliesberg between the villages of Hekpoort and Skeerpoort.
This rock provided shelter for the local Po people during the invasion of the area by the Zulu warlord Mzilikazi in 1820. During this time it was customary to to live near the Magalies river.
The local people relocated to relative safety on the mountain side at the rock where they established a small village.
During the Anglo Boer war of 1898 to 1903 the women of the area took shelter at the rock from the English military.
