Description

Depart from Durban at 6am and head off to Battle of Isandlwane and Rorkes' Drift. Our guide will take you to the battlefields and to the 2 Museums. The Battle of Isandlwana, during the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879, has been the subject of conjecture and controversy for 140 years. Calling on the old Zulu stories of the battle to recreate the events of the day, our guides will explain how Isandlwana battle was won, giving insight to the brave warriors and Zulu chieftains who fought and died in defence of their King and country. The Battle of Rorke’s Drift, fought immediately after the Battle of Isandlwana, is famous throughout the English-speaking world. Here, at a small mission station, 139 British soldiers were attacked by 4000 Zulu warriors. The result was a British victory which saw the award of more Victoria Crosses than in any other battle in history. The story of Rorke’s Drift is an incredibly tragic story; one of human courage and sacrifice. The unspeakable suffering endured by the warriors and soldiers on such a tiny area is confounding. We spend the night at Elephant Lake Hotel in St Lucia or similar hotel. Day 2 we go for a game drive in Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve, a vast reserve with beautiful green vegetation. Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve set in the heart of Zululand where Africa’s Big 5 (Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhinoceros) roam the flourishing savannah. Established in 1895 this is the oldest park in South Africa and encompasses over 98 000 hectares of beautiful African landscape. The Park contains an immense diversity of fauna and flora and is characterised by hilly topography. The list of animals at the park is long and varied. Hluhluwe Game Reserve makes up the northern top half of the reserve which is renowned for its diverse variety of bird and animal life. We spend the night in St Lucia at Elephant Lake or similar Hotel (bed and breakfast) Day 3 is spent in Isimangaliso Wetlands Park (a World Heritage Site) We start off with a hippo & croc boat cruise. Discover, Witness, and Observe Hippos, Nile Crocodiles, and Hundreds of bird species on our Hippo & Croc Boat Cruise while in St Lucia. This 2 hour Boat Cruise Safari gets you close up to the residents of the estuary. After the boat cruise we go for a game drive in Isimangaliso Wetlands Park. The iSimangaliso Wetlands Park was declared South Africa's first Natural World Heritage Site in 1999. Previously known as the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park, the UNESCO site dates back over 120 years. Established in 1895 the reserve is considered South Africa's third largest park with its’ unique ecosystem spanning over 280km of near pristine coastline and 328 000 hectares of magnificent scenery. One could see elephants, zebra, kudu, rhino, giraffe and much more. After the game drive we start our journey back to Durban in the afternoon to conclude this 3 day great tour.
