South Africa has a "young", albeit momentous history, especially the last 200 years. Come along for a romp through these two centuries, with the 1820 Settlers, the abolition of slavery, the Great Trek leading to the deaths of Piet Retief and his retainers. This in turn led to the Battle of Blood River - one of South Africa's most pivotal battles. Through it all runs the thread of Shaka, his successors and the Zulu nation. Boer versus Brit, the arrival of Indian labour, the discovery of diamonds and gold-it makes for a heady tale worth sharing.
