Karel Landman House

The Karel Landman House is located on the farm Uithoek in the Glencoe Valley and dates from just after the Battle of Ncome /Blood River in 1838. Landman 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 Uithoek and his daughter Susanna and de Jager settled on the adjoining farm Wasbank. The Karel Landman House is the oldest surviving pioneer house in Kwazulu Natal. It is located on private property but can be viewed by prior arrangement with the owner.
