The Anglo-Zulu War was fought in 1879 between the Zulu Kingdom and the British empire. Battles took place in the rolling hills of Kwazulu Natal. Zulu battlefield tours are the ideal way to experience this history. Isibindi Zulu Lodge offers a unique experience to absorb the environment and countryside in which this conflict took place.
Zulu Battlefield Tour- this departs at around 8.45am from the lodge after breakfast. You go out with a local battlefields guide to the battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorkes drift where the British and the Zulu had some spectacular battles. The guide will explain exactly what occurred on the day, who was involved and give some background to key role players on the day.
The day usually starts off by heading straight to Isandlwana, from there you make your way to Rorkes drift where you will have a picnic lunch and continue on with this battle site.
