Duration: 2 nights side trip tour
Price from: £599pp
Day 1 Durban/Rorke’s Drift: Transfer by road to Rorke’s Drift in the Drakensberg area (approx 4 hours drive). The KwaZulu Natal Battlefields area bears testament to the ferocious wars between the British, Boers and Zulu nation that took place over numerous years.
Day 2 Rorke’s Drift: With 82 battlefields, museums, old fortifications and places of remembrance there is much to see. However, two of the most famous and pivotal Anglo- Zulu battles took place at Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift, so these should be a priority. Other notable locations include Ladysmith, Colenso, Estcourt, Newcastle and Spioenkop.
Day 3 Rorke’s Drift/Durban: Return transfer to Durban.
