The Battlefields

The Battlefields
Tailor-made The Battlefields Holidays

KwaZulu-Natal’s hallowed Battlefields are now bathed in golden silence but it’s not hard to envisage the brutal wars between Boers, Zulus and British forces that were fought here spear-to-rifle over a centennial ago. Outstanding cultural guides bring South Africa’s bloodiest conflicts to life as you journey across unsheltered grassy plains and up desolate hills. The geology remains unchanged, albeit now scored with salient white rocks marking mass graves. The air, though sobering and thick with ghosts, holds legendary tales of bravery, triumph and survival.

These once blood-stained lands span 70 years of ferocious battles and are divided into eras so you can retrace each dramatic event in its exact location. Giving a spine-tingling sense of being plugged into the past, you’ll visit the places where the Queen’s colours were lost, where over 1000 British soldiers died and where Zulu warriors were crushed. Led with great sensitivity and respect for all that fought, tours are engrossing, immersive and incredibly insightful. The Battlefields is bleak but beautiful, representing the stories and the people of the past that goes way beyond the limitations of a textbook or modern museum.

Alfred& is expert at travel that doesn’t just skim the surface of a country. If you’d like to tour the Battlefields, our specialist team are ready with the experiences that evoke a real sense of history.
