8 Day Beach, Bush and Battlefields – Anglo -Boer War

Book Now

Description

Combining some of the best that KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) has to offer, this family-orientated self-drive package has it all: history, wildlife and ocean. The history aspect focusses on the Anglo-Boer War where the British Empire clashed with the South African Republic and the Republic of the Orange Free State.

A fiercely contested battle at Spioenkop in 1900 saw the Boers defeated by an army double its size; and it remains a rallying point for nationalistic sentiment to date. Leaving these momentous battlefields, the journey continues a short drive towards Ladysmith for an exciting wildlife experience before heading to the fair shores of northern KZN for some well-deserved relaxation, beach fun and ocean exploration.

Highlights

  • Historical battlefields

  • Big Five game viewing

  • One of the best places in the world for scuba diving and snorkelling
  • During summer, sea turtles come ashore at night to lay their eggs in the sand

  • The pristine golden beaches are a perfect family playground
