On leaving Durban, travel to the famous battlefields of the Anglo-Zulu war.

First visit the historic site of the battle of Isandlwana. The guide will explain how 20,000 Zulu warriors faced British troops in 1879. This battle resulted in one of the biggest defeats in British colonial history.

We will then cross the Rorke's Drift battlefield, the site of the famous battle between 4,000 Zulus and less than 200 British soldiers.

The guide will offer a detailed description of the notable events of these terrible battles. You will also discover how this war and British victory saw the end of the independent Zulu kingdom.

At the end of the tour, you will be taken back to central Durban.
