Since Spioenkop was such a significant battle, I decided to show some photos taken there a few years ago. Spioenkop is probably one of the best Natal battlefields to visit. It is an eerie place that is virtually unchanged since the day of the battle. There is no human habitation nearby and the monuments have not been vandalised and have been kept in good order. A bonus is that it offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, which, at a distance, looks largely unspoiled.
