DescriptionTravel to the KwaZulu-Natal from Durban on a full-day battlefield tour that is rich in Anglo-Zulu war history. You’ll see where two of the most famous battles between the Zulu impis and British armies took place. During the tour you’ll have the opportunity to see some of the most spectacular scenery in KwaZulu-Natal. The Anglo-Zulu War, fought in the 1870s, is known for a number of particularly bloody battles. At the battlefields of Isandlwana, approximately 24,000 Zulu impis were victorious over British troops. They took on the firepower of the British soldiers and wiped out nearly an entire regiment in less than an hour. After learning about the battle at Isandlwana, you’ll head on to Rorke’s Drift. Here, a handful of British soldiers, who were outnumbered 35 to 1, fought off 4,000 Zulu impis for 12 hours. Victoria Crosses were awarded to 11 soldiers as a result of their actions in this battle. Lunch is included.
