207 | After the execution of Retief and his men at Mgungundlovu, King Dingane despatched his junior regiments to drive the remaining Trekkers from Natal. Many Voortrekker families had left the protection of the larger laagers in order to establish their farms and were caught unawares. Approximately 282 Voortrekkers and 250 servants were killed along the Bloukrans during the Zulu attacks of the 16 and 17 February 1838.

The Memorial on site is on the dirt road off R103 between Colenso and Estcourt. There is no on site information and the use of a Guide is recommended to enhance the experience of the site.
