Nestling in a valley in the picturesque Biggarsberg, are the towns of Dundee and Glencoe. At the base of the Indumeni mountain, the highest peak in the Biggarsberg range of mountains, is Wasbank, a small town which time has appeared to pass by. Indumeni means ‘where the thunder rolls’ and the area around this mountain is called Endumeni, hence the name of the municipal authority of this area.
Situated equidistant between Durban and Johannesburg, with well-established road, rail and air infrastructure, the Indumeni region is the geographic centre of Northern KwaZulu Natal. There are numerous provincial and national government departmental branches in Dundee. The whole area has a fascinating and multi-faceted history. There are numerous interesting and unusual places to visit and in doing so, you can experience our culture and heritage. The cultural, economic and military history of the area is depicted in the Talana Museum, on the outskirts of Dundee.
