Boar War Battlefield sites

by MamguIz&Will

Follow our visit to the Hluhluwe Park we want to go to the Boar War sites around Ladysmith. From what I have read, they are difficult to find and a guided tour is recommended. Does anyone know if it is possible to join a group tour rather than do it on an individual basis. Thanks

Hi Cardiff is superb - just about to take the dog for a walk around the local park. Thanks for the links I'll check the out. Have you been there and done it?

I know you are after Boer War tours, but the following is info about the Anglo-Zulu wars.

I highly recommend Fugitive's Drift Lodge. I know quite a few people who have gone on their tours of Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift. The tours used to be run often by David Rattray, who was unfortunately murdered. However there is sufficient knowledge and passion left behind at the lodge to still be able to provide a fantastic tour. I would also recommend his CD series "Day of the Dead Moon" which is a descriptive "lecture" about the Anglo-zulu wars - fascinating (and turned me into an antisocial holidaymaker a few years ago, when all I wanted was to hear the next installment.)

(the written word can be much more severe than intended, so please understand I do not mean to be critical) Just to be pedantic, Boar is a pig, and Boer is Afrikaans for a farmer. :)

I am not sure how much time you have but a really great combination is Fugitives Drift and Three Tree Hill Lodge. Fugitives Drift concentrates on the boer and english wars and then Three tree hill concentrates on Boer and Zulu war and it is so interesting to get both points of view it is very enlightning indeed.

It is quiet difficult getting space so be sure to book well ahead.

ABSA Stadium

by MikeAtSea

South Africa is a sport fanatic nation – and the stadiums that are available today in the country including in Durban are some of the best in the world. The ABSA Stadium is the normal rugby ground, but also home to soccer games and athletic functions

When you come inside the VOORTREKKER MONUMENT you will be treated to the sight of beautiful stone carvings of the walls. The carvings depict the history of the Boers as they came to Africa to start a new life and the struggles they faced.

Durban Botanical Gardens

by nxlink

The botanical gardens in Durban go back a long way to 1849. It is not surprising then that such a well established garden offers a vast collection of plants, some of which are among the rarest in the world. The Southern Africa cycad collection is considered the finest cycad collection in the world. The size of the cycads is truly amazing. Many are the size of medium trees, with trucks of 5 feet or more in circumference. There is also an excellent orchid house and restaurant and gift shop.

umfolozi game park

by hanspeter_W.

This is a large and incredibly scenic park with rippling hills covered in low acacia bush, and lofty viewpoints giving a bird's eye view of who's doing what where. The north of the park is more rugged and mountainous with forests and grasslands, while the south and west is more undulating with open savannah. Hluhluwe is a difficult word to pronounce but something sounding like "Shoushlooee" is close enough.

The park contains an immense diversity of fauna and flora and is particularly famous for its conservation of black and white rhino. It contains hundreds of endangered black rhino and the largest population of white rhino in the world.
