Perched on a ridge overlooking a nature reserve and the Indian Ocean, the KwaZulu-Natal town of Mtunzini is historically in an area regarded as the traditional home of the Zulu nation, South Africa’s most populous people. It was here that many frontier wars were fought between the British and the Zulus and a battlefield route has been established in an attempt to recreate the events that raged on between 1879 and 1896.
The name Mtunzini means place of shadows and will be forever linked to hunter and ivory trader John Dunn who, being fluent in Zulu, became an advisor to the Zulu king Cetshwayo.
