Hi,
After previous visits to the battlefields, I have not been able to get a good impression of the Gingindlovu encounter, due to the sugar cane being pretty high. Does anybody know what month of the year this stuff gets harvested ?
Cheers

Harvesting normally takes place between June and December.

I was at Gingindlovu a few years back and the cane was harvested in late September, and the stubble burnt shortly afterwards, so I got a good look at the area.

It was introduced to that area after the war, in 1880's.
