Remote and little visited, Khambula offers a view of a major Zulu battlefield that has altered very little, with the exception of small areas of forestry planting which in fact do not spoil the view or sense of place.
The high point of the site (the British redoubt area) offers sweeping views over all the surrounding fields and an enables an easy appreciaiton of the way the battle played out, with successive attacks from different approaches being fought off.
I found it a very evocatvie and fasciniating place.

I took Phil Gibson to the site of the epic battle of Khambule a long time ago, but the sweeping visions of those green hills, rolling in and out of the low mist that morning, gave us a haunting review of what those redcoats of Colonel Wood must have seen when Nthsingwayo's army, still spoiled by the marvellous victory at Isandlwana, rolled into history after another bloody win for the ayt Hlobane Mountain the previous day. We walked the ranges, visited the cemetery, and stood at the gun positions as we envisaged the Frontier Light Horse investing the Zulu spearheaders in front of us. Always worth a visit....
