Battlefields Travel Guide
As in many parts of the world, the later part of the 19th Century was a time of conflict and confrontation in South Africa, particularly the area we now call KwaZulu-Natal.

The Drakensberg Boys' Choir School was founded in 1965, with 20 students. The dream? To build something that would rival the Vienna Boys' Choir.
