Description

The guided 5-6 km Battlefield Walk & Talk includes an overview of the Battle of Blaauwberg, and you will be shown the route taken by the British 1st Brigade on their march from Melkbosstrand into position on 8th January 1806. We then follow in the footsteps of the 2nd Brigade Scottish Highland Regiments as they charged the Batavian line, and establish where General Janssens assembled his Batavian defence line against the invading British force. A map and brief of the Battle will be provided to assist in your understanding of this historic event which influenced Africa.

The talk is led by registered field tour guide Dave Honour who is also an expert on KZN battle sites. For more information or to book, please call/sms Dave Honour at 082 906 4875 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
