Shaka Memorial


The Shaka Memorial is a provincial heritage site in Stanger in KwaZulu-Natal.

In 1938 it was described in the Government Gazette as a Monument, made in Newcastle, erected in 1932 on the alleged site of King Shaka's grave.

Shaka was born in Zululand in 1787, his mother being Princess Nandi, and his father, the Zulu King, Senzangakhona. In 1816, on the death of his father, Shaka, became King of the Zulus. At this time, he was living at his royal settlement, "Bulawayo" in the heart, of Zululand. He was engaged in forming a vast and very effective Zulu army of warriors (Impi).

A 20 minute slide show on the history of King Shaka can be viewed. There is also a small curio shop and an interpretative centre.

Open daily from 8:30 to 16:00
