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!

Rorkes Drift to Blood River

It was finally time for Pat and I to leave the Rorkes Drift Hotel and head towards our final destination, the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve, but not before we made a detour to visit one of South Africa’s iconic historical sites; the site of the Battle of Blood River.
