The coal mining town of Dundee is located in the heart of Midlands Battlefields. Local historians offer guided tours to the famous Anglo/Zulu battlefields and monuments. It was here, at the battle of Talana on 20 October 1899, that the first shots of The Anglo Boer War were fired.

The Talana Museum is set on the actual site of the battle 2 kilometres out of Dundee on the Vryheid Road. The museum houses an interesting display on coal mining, an outstanding glass collection, a miner's house, and a Victorian farmstead which is furnished to serve as a local history and military museum.

The Consol Glass Factory in Dundee which is now closed was the oldest producing glass factory in the country.

 

Other places of historical interest near Dundee include the San-Bushman painting sites, which were inhabited between 2,000 and 4,000 years ago.

The Isibindi Eco Reserve offers game viewing and walks through the 4,000 reserve, and also offers visitors the opportunity to participate in Zulu cultural experiences.

Review accommodation for Nxala Ranch - Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Dundee, KwaZulu-Natal.
wheretostay.co.za/nxalaranch

For a small corporate venue, the Nxala Ranch was the ideal Dundee accommodation in the KZN Midlands. The thatch-roofed Nxala Ranch bed and breakfast in Dundee sleeps eight, and is catered accommodation, but they do have a fully equipped kitchen for those who want a Dundee self catering option on a holiday or weekend away.

It wasn't only for the quick access to this convenient Dundee accommodation, but our weekend team building exercises included game viewing, fishing, hiking, and seeing San rock art.
Dundee is in the Midlands and Battlefields tourist areas so we also took the opportunity of visiting the historic Anglo South African War Battlefields.

All in all, despite the 'work' aspect, accommodation at the Nxala Ranch in Dundee was very relaxing, as most evenings were spent around the braai on the spacious veranda overlooking the dam.
