The Natal Battlefields
Kwa Zulu Natal History

It is said that the soil of Kwazulu-Natal is so fertile because it has been drenched in blood. The scenic and tranquil pastoral countryside of KwaZulu-Natal has borne witness to bloody conflict and widespread bloodshed.

Ancient times - 1860:   Zulus vs Zulus and Swazis
1835 - 1839:   Voortrekkers vs Zulus
1879:   British vs Zulus
1880 - 1902:   British vs Boers

The area between Estcourt in the South and Vryheid to the north has the greatest concentration of battlefields in South Africa and is thus known as the Battlefields Route. There are many special events planned to coincide with centenary of the Great Boer War of 1899-1902.

Back. . .

Note: Each of the Battlefield Route areas has both SATOUR registered military and natural history guides who are available at short notice to escort tourists to local attractions. In addition, many resort owners have specialist local knowledge and are often most willing to share their knowledge.

Please note that most of the battlefields remain unchanged and as such are undeveloped. Take some water, sunscreen and a hat with you!
