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

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.

Did this sugar caine cause problems during the Zulu war or was it not there then.

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