Karel Landman House in Voortrekker-Zulu Conflict, Battlefields Region, KwaZulu-Natal
The Landman House is the oldest surviving pioneer house in Kwa-Zulu Natal and is an excellent example of Boer architecture.
Landman, a Boer Commandant in the Battle of Blood River and his son-in-law, Jan de Jager, passed through the area on the way to the battle and were attracted to it.
After the battle, in which Landman was second in command of the Boers, he settled on the farm 'Uithoek' and his daughter Susanna and de Jager settled on the adjoining farm 'Wasbank'.
The Landman family graveyard is also on the property.
Landman house is situated on private property and should only be viewed by prior arrangement with the owner.
