Anglo Zulu War Day Tour

Reaching the battlefields from Durban in a day is doable, though to be honest it is a long day. We start off at 6am from Durban, and usually only get back at about 6pm; so a full 12 hours. But having said that, it’s probably one of the best experiences for fans of battlefields especially if you have limited time. The Anglo Zulu War Day Tour has proven to be really popular in spite of the long day, for those that watched Michael Caine portray Bromhead and Stanley Baker Chard in the film “Zulu” there is nothing quite like standing on the very ground depicted in the film Zulu.

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!
