Grave of John Dunn

» » » » Grave of John Dunn

John Dunn, the legendary hunter, trader and White chief of King Cetshwayo, played a crucial part in the turbulent later half of the 19th Century in Zululand. After befriending Cetshwayo, Dunn became one of the richest and most powerful men in the Zulu kingdom through his ivory and gun trading and acquired large tracts of farmland between Thukela River and Mtunzini. His descendants continue to farm in the area and they have erected an imposing memorial at his grave.

The graveyard is on a private farm off the R102 close to the Emoyeni Catholic Mission Station. It is quite difficult to find and it is recommended that the use of a guide be employed to find it.
