Today it is difficult to imagine that the scenic and tranquil landscape of the northern parts of KwaZulu-Natal was once the focal point of major military clashes. The area has great appeal to military history enthusiasts, for it was here that one historical drama after another unfolded against the canvas of the African veld and the majestic Drakensberg. The area boasts the largest concentration of battlefields in South Africa and they draw visitors from around the world. Prince Louis Napoleon, Mahatma Ghandi, Winston Churchill and Louis Botha are just a few of the historical legends who were involved in battles fought here. But don't let the name Battlefields Route mislead you into thinking the battle sites are the only attractions the area has to offer. While the key towns on the Route all share a common historical theme, each has its own unique charm and range of attractions. There are arts and craft outlets, scenic hikes, fly fishing, farm resorts, Zulu culture, country guest houses, hospital bed and breakfast establishments, rural roadside stalls, cottage industries and a range of industrial and educational tours. You may also wish to plan a trip to coincide with annual events; details of which are available from the Information Offices in each of the towns on the Route. Each area offers specialist guides who will accompany you to selected battlefields to vividly bring back the past, as well as scheduled tours to battle sites. Or use the battlefields Route self-drive brochure. Walk and Talk tape aids are also popular.

Situated in the northern region of KwaZulu-Natal, the Battlefields Route is an unique destination that offers a fascinating insight into the past - and friendly hospitality wherever you go.
