African battlefields is a South African based specialist operator located in Pretoria, we supply you with a one stop operation from collecting you from the airport in luxury transport, quality accommodation on and near the battlefields and walking the Battlefields to re-live the history of some of the most well preserved Battlefields available from the British Africa colonial conflicts of the 19th century.

Bringing to life South African history and Battlefields of the early Voortrekker's and the battle of Blood River of 1838 when Andries Pretorius confronted the Zulu King Dingaan, the Anglo-Zulu Battlefields of Isandhlwana - the biggest single defeat ever inflicted on a modern British army against the spears of the Zulu impi, Fugitives Drift of Melville and Coghill who died while trying to save the Queens colours, the 11 VC's at Rorkes Drift of the 24 "B" coy Welsh Borderers & the Ulundi Battlefield and the final defeat of King Cetshwayo and the mighty Zulu Empire on the 4 July 1879.

In 1880 after the Boers in Pretoria rebelled against British interference in the Transvaal, Majuba (the Hill of Doves) on the Natal border was the place when on the 27 February 1881 Gen Colley was mortally wounded, forcing the British to sign a peace treaty, first at O'Neill's cottage and later at Hilldrop House Newcastle. "Remember Majuba" was the rallying cry by the British forces some 18 years later during the second Anglo-Boer War of 1899 - 1902. After the battle of Paardeberg 27 February 1900 and the surrender of Piet Cronje with his 4000 burghers, President Paul Kruger who was nearby at Poplar Grove, on hearing the bad news placed his head into his hands and was heard muttering "they have taken away my Majuba Day".

On the 11 October 1899 the day after Paul Kruger's birthday, the little Boer Republic of the Transvaal declared war against the Might of the British Empire. We have tours to the Battlefields of Talana, Colenso, Spioenkop, the siege town of Ladysmith, Winston Churchill's armoured train ambush and capture site as well as his Pretoria prison and the British HQ of Melrose House - the signing of the peace accord of 31 May 1902. Group discounts available
