The Egazini Memorial in Fingo Village is a township-based heritage site that commemorates the site of the Battle of Grahamstown, where in April 1891 between 6000-10000 amaXhosa warriors lead by Nxele (also known as Makana) attacked the British settlers based at Fort Selwyn. The British garrison only housed around 350 soldiers and so, vastly outnumbering the British, the amaXhosa seemed assured of victory. However, they were unprepared for the British artillery, and were eventually forced to retreat after sustaining heavy casualties. Egazini means "place of blood", and is the isiXhosa name for the hillside. [more information]
The Egazini Memorial now consists of two parts. The original memorial was unveiled by the Department of Arts & Culture in 2001, and consists of a raised toposcope on the far corner of the original battle site. The battlefield site is used as an informal playing field, and the toposcope is now in a state of poor repair.
A newer part of the Memorial was established in 2015, and is within a fenced off area to the West of the battlefield. This area houses a number of mosaic pillars by local artists, each commemorating some aspect of the history of Egazini/Battle of Grahamstown and the surrounding areas (many depict amaXhosa proverbs). There's also a mosaic toposcope pointing towards some of the key places in early Grahamstown/iRhini's history. Most of the artwork was developed by the Egazini Outreach Project.
The cache is located just within the fenced area of the newer part. It is a small container, but has some space for tradables. Please leave the pencil & sharpener for people to sign the log.
The entrance is to the East of the fenced area, and it is possible to park off the road at that point. There's a gate that's sometime unlocked, and a more informal entrance further down (co-ordinates as a reference point). Although the cache is technically accessible 24/7, you probably want to look for it during daylight hours. The area where the cache is located is close to a well used footpath, so some stealth may be required.
