© SA Tourism© SA TourismLike many other parts of the world, the history of South Africa is one of conflict and counter-conflict – and the course of these battles, wars and skirmishes has shaped the landscape. But, of course, there’s not much point in visiting a place where something happened in history if you have no way of interpreting it, so it’s a good idea to stick to the better known battlefields and, perhaps, choose to do a guided tour. There are some interesting battlefields in the Free State and the Northern Cape but the most well preserved and well documented are in KwaZulu-Natal.
