Visit KwaZulu Natal's Battlefields & The Zulu Kingdom
Steeped in history, the Battlefields & The Zulu Kingdom area is a beautiful land of conflict and bloody wars fought over a period of 70 years between the British, Zulu and Boers.
Today the undulating landscape of river valleys, plains and rocky outcrops is littered with the remains of stone forts and small graveyards that indicate the sorrows of great battles that shaped both South African and British history. Set in an scenic area, the details of these brutal conflicts are relived in graphic and emotional detail on an historic and cultural tour of KwaZulu Natal.
The Zulu-Kingdom is also worthy of a visit because of its unique cultural significance. Once led by the legendary Shaka Zulu, the way of life and proud traditions of the Zulu nation have been largely preserved on this ancestral land. Greeted by spear-wielding warriors and traditional Zulu dancers, visitors will have the opportunity to get a glimpse of South Africa's ancient cultures and traditions.
One great aspect of KwaZulu Natal, is that the area is well suited for a self-drive holiday, and can easily be combined with a beach escape in Durban or a KwaZulu Natal safari. The Battlefields & The Zulu Kingdom is one of the South Africa highlights and worth a visit, especially if you have already discovered other parts of the country.
