Come and visit some of the well known and recorded battles fought between the Zulu Nation and the British Empire at Isandlwana, and Rorke's Drift on the 22nd and 23rd of January 1879, where almost 1500 English soldiers were wiped out within 2 hours, and thousands of Zulu's perished.
Included in the tour, the battle at Rorke's Drift, where a mere 130 odd English, fought against 4000 Zulu's in an almost impossible fight of man to man at close range.
The English came off victorious, and lost only 17 men in a fight that started in the late afternoon on the 22nd of January, and ended around 03h00 the next morning. the British soldiers were rewarded with 11 "Victorian Crosses" for their bravery and guts.
We can then also visit the battle of "Blood River", the battle between the "Boers" (Afrikaners) and the Zulu. 3500 Zulu lost there lives, and see the battlefield site, totally intact as it was during that time on the 16th of December 1838...
Both battlefields are mostly still intact as they were during that time, and we can have those tours done in one day, or spend a night in lodges or country houses in the area. One of them is of interest, namely "Penny Farthing", as a late family member of the host was involved in the battle of Isandlwana, and many a story will be told in detail around a warm log fire.
