The Battle of Talana

The Battle of Talana

Regular contributor, Andrea Abbott attended the Talana Live weekend, which commemorates the Battle of Talana every October

It was a super event as always, with lots of variety reflecting South Africa’s diverse culture and history in a very balanced way. ‘It’s a great learning experience, lots of fun and the best Nation-building exercise,’ she says.

Andrea shares some of her favourite photographs with us in the gallery below.
