Shaka’s Rock – Groutville – Itshe likaShaka

This monument and stone is to the south of Stanger, near Groutville and has commanding views to the north and south. It is said that Shaka used the rock as a seat to review his impi’s on maneuver.

This monument is also close to the Groutville home, museum and burial place of Chief Albert Luthuli. The museum, graves and Shaka’s seat are all worth a visit and are just off the old road, with clear signage.
