Battle of Isandlwana

Many events have occurred throughout the history of South Africa that can be considered pivotal events; moments that have shaped the path the country has followed. It is my personal opinion, that one of the most important events, fell on the 22nd January 1879 when the Zulu army struck the British army a surprising and devastating blow – this was the Battle of Isandlwana.

It’s hardly surprising that Durban is becoming even more popular with tourists then. We have a number of fantastic Durban day tours for visitors to Durban to enjoy.

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!
