'The Great Trek' was a migration of Dutch-speaking colonists, known as Voortrekkers, in South Africa during the 1830s and 1840s. The primary reasons were dissatisfaction with British rule in the Cape Colony - particularly their policies of equality for all races and freedom for slaves, which clashed with the colonists' beliefs. They also sought to escape economic depression and population pressure in the Cape Colony. This led them to migrate into the more remote and unoccupied interior of South Africa in search of land and independence.
