Description

This is the site of Shaka's capital after the Ndwandwe campaign, with construction starting around 1820. The nearby cowards' bush is where King Shaka allegedly used to have warriors executed if they had shown cowardice in battle. The first major contact between Shaka and the western traders from Port Natal occurred here. It is a Zulu site of major importance.
