Overview
More
There are various sites and museums that offer a glimpse into the Battlefields and Military History of 19th century British colonial era in the Republic of South Africa from the early pioneers of 1838 to the Anglo Zulu War and Anglo Boer Battlefields, but what ever site you visit experience it with a professional Battlefields company. We do not glorify war but pay tribute and celebrate the courage of the many British and Commonwealth soldiers, the sacrifice of the Boer forces and the warriors of the mighty Zulu empire who gave battle on the frontier of Queen Victoria's British Colonial Africa, we travel into the Battlefields of the South African Wars of the 19th century of the British, the Boers and the Zulu's.
