Day Tour to Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift

A few days ago I was booked for a day tour to Isandwlana and Rorkes Drift. Lately we’ve had some extraordinarily warn weather, the temperature at Isandlwana reached 40 degrees Celsius (104 F). And although this is hotter than usual, the British would have had a similar heat during the Anglo Zulu war campaign!

KwaZulu-Natal Tour… pt1

The first official day of the KwaZulu-Natal tour started with a morning tour of Durban. I took Pat along Durban’sGolden Mile” (a 6km long stretch of beachfront), whilst chatting a little bit about Durban’s history; the day was perfect for the beach, blue skies and a cool breeze and postcard-perfect ocean views.
