Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift: Anglo Zulu War (1879) (full day – also available by helicopter)

We visit both battlefields of the Anglo Zulu War.  In January 1879, five British Columns crossed out of the British Colony of Natal into the Kingdom of the Zulu nation under King Cetshwayo, direct descendent of King Shaka Zulu. What followed was a series of bloody, tumultuous battles that initially threw the British forces into disarray before ultimately resulting in the crushing of the proud Zulu nation, thus ending a period of regional military might spanning sixty years.
