Battlefields and the Zulu Kingdom 365

The site of bloody wars fought between the British, Zulus and Boers over a period of 70 years, the Battlefields are today an undulating landscape of river valleys, plains and rocky outcrops marked by the remains of stone forts and small graveyards that indicate battles that shaped both South African and British history. 

The Zulu Kingdom is also worthy of a visit for its unique cultural significance – once led by one of the most revered and celebrated warriors and kings in Zulu history, Shaka Zulu. Here the proud traditions and history of the Zulu nation have been largely preserved on this ancestral land and visitors will be greeted by spear-wielding warriors and traditional Zulu dancers in a glimpse into the past of this proud people.
