Situated in the valley of the Biggarsberg Mountains, between Johannesburg and Durban, the region is the geographic and administrative centre of Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal. As part of South Africa's military history and noted for its battlefields Dundee is an historical site. Named after farm owner and Scotsman Peter Smith, after his hometown in Scotland, Dundee has a peaceful charm to it.
The town is surrounded by uniquely named mountains such as "Indumeni" (where the thunder rolls), "Mpati" (the place of good waters) and "Talana" (the shelf where precious items are kept).
Dundee is where the 1899 Anglo Boer War began with the Talana Museum, Heritage Park and Battlefields having superb exhibits on the battles of bygone times. Coal mining was also a major source of industry in the past and these days that is showcased in the Coal Mine Museum of South Africa.
Visitors usually make Dundee their central base when visiting tourist spots such as Rorkes Drift, Isandlwana and Fugitives Drift.
A number of beautiful old homes in the town and on nearby farms have been converted into tourist accommodation. Hotels, guest lodges, self-catering cottages and caravan parks offer visitors a wide range of quality accommodation.
