You will discover that our rates are more than affordable. We major on independence, self-catering and security in the perfect getaway setting where there is no noise, no crime, no malaria, but only a piece of dream real estate on a huge park. “Permanently booked”  www.chaletsonthepark.co.za

Where eagles land in the day and owls hoot at night one can experience history come alive – we are nestled between Melville Street and Chard Street by accident or by destiny (who knows?) – named after two of the star warriors of the Battle of Isandlwana and the Defence of Rorke’s Drift. During these world famous battles both received the Victoria Cross. At the award ceremony Chard was alive and unfortunately Melville was dead. Just like the 24th Regiment of Wales, Chalets on the Park just happens to be #24 Melville Street of Dundee, not in Scotland, but in Kwazulu-Natal.

Relax under a palm tree, then chill out in the glistening swimming pool; or take a morning walk to Mpati mountain, part of the first Long Tom action of the 2nd Boer War. Just 2 km from Talana, 40km from Blood River, 65km from Isandlwana and 45km from Rorke’s Drift you can explore every spoke from the middle of the Battlefield Wheel. Our well-appointed setting is in the centre of the Battlefield Route and within reach of the bush, berg and the beach.
