Battlefields Travel Guide

As in many parts of the world, the later part of the 19th Century was a time of conflict and confrontation in South Africa, particularly the area we now call KwaZulu-Natal. The British were at the height of their empire-building zeal, the Zulu nation was one of the most... Read more

Dundee Town of Battlefields

Dundee - Dundee as a tourist destination is perfect for the Battlefields & associated history. The Talana Museum is a lesson for how a museum can be run with everything from pre-history to the development of the town & the area and the various industries in the neighborhood.

Vryheid Town of Zululand

Lack of signposts for places of interest - We used Vryheid as a stop over on our way home from Kruger National Park (4 - 6 Jan 2014). Our sole purpose was to visit the Battle fields in the area. We were disappointed to see the lack of interest in signposts to these various sites. Some signs were the old brown colour which were faded or the lettering had peeled off (one Nkambula sign). Some sites one couldn't even get to - no path or road in particular Scheepersnek along the R33. The entrance to Blood River was appalling - poorly sign posted. In fact we stopped to ask a local if we were on the right road. 21km on dirt road, which could do with a grading, resulted in our ultimate destination. Blood River has just celebrated 175 years & yet is hard to find. Maybe the road signs need money spent on them rather than millions spent on another memorial site depicting the Zulu side of Blood River which incidentally is closed to tourists on a Sunday! We found this strange when weekends are often prime time for tourists, like us local South Africans, to visit interesting venues. The potholes on our roads are something to be seriously looked at - some have been patched (badly) while others are large & could do serious damage if one were not able to dodge the holes. Not all can be blamed on Vryheid as we noticed we passed through three municipal areas on our 70 km trip just to Blood River. Maybe all municipalities should work together for the betterment of South Africa? I would like to see pamphlets and maps readily available at shops, garages etc to places of interest within the Vryheid area. This will allow tourist easier access to information rather than trying to follow the information sign to a venue somewhere in town.

Hutten Heights Suburb of Newcastle

Hutten Heights - A quiet leafy suburb of Newcastle. We were visiting family in Newcastle and stayed in Marisch Guest House in Hutten Heights.

Dundee Town of Battlefields

Convenient - Very convenient for visits to the Battlefields with some pleasant residential suburbs and an excellent museum run by friendly helpful staff, but what a down-at-heel, litter-strewn CBD! My British guests were quite shocked. Time to clean up and get out some pots of paint.
