The Heritage Route celebrates one of the great Zulu chiefs. King Shaka Zulu is considered by many as the architect of the Zulu nation as he was responsible for joining scattered clans into the powerful unified force that dominated the land between the modern Swazi border and the Eastern Cape.
Place worth visiting are:
High Rock - where Shaka would sit to plan his military tactics.
Observation Rock - King Shaka would sit here to watch the movements of his army training on the plains below
Shakas Trees - these trees are found in the town of KwaDukuza and are almost 200 years old. The trees include the Indaba Tree where Shaka held council and the Assassination Tree where Shaka was reputedly killed in 1828.
