Zulu Battlefield Tour

From our early morning pickup 0630 till we were dropped off at 1900 it was a Fabulous day. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out additional information along the way.Although it was quite a long journey he made a couple of refreshment stops along the way. There was the added bonus that my wife and I were the only two passengers which made the tour even more personal. My thanks to the guide and Viator.

5 Star Scenic, Historical, Cultural Immersion Tour

This tour was enjoyable on so many levels! The tour was provided by 1st Zulu Safaris, by our tour guide Benson, who was exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, personable and attentive the the groups every need and interest. Benson made this 12 hour day fun and educational, even for those individuals who were not history buffs. The 4 hour drive to the site was incredibly scenic and comfortable in luxury transportation. The return trip was through a different route, so you never got bored. Many photo opportunities. Upon arrival to Isandlwana and Roarkes Drift, everything was well organized, with interesting presentations and views of the authentic sites. Immersion in the cultural, as well as the historical events made the tour come alive. Lunch and numerous clean bathroom stops were offered. The day was long, but will live in my memory forever, as one of the most outstanding tours I have ever taken. I would definitely recommend 1st Zulu Safaris and Benson, as a tour guide, as not all tours to this area are quality adventures.

The tour began with the on time...

The tour began with the on time arrival of Terry, my guide. Proceeding on the drive to the Battlefields, which took a couple of hours, a very informative tape was played that explained the history of the Zulu Wars and the events that surrounded the Isandlawana Battlefields. Terry provided additional information as we drove to the various sites. We stopped at several locations that provided fantastic views of the whole area, We, also, visited various museums and monuments along the way. Terry gave excellent briefings at each stop. We rested at a lovely hotel for an excellent lunch. The veranda of the hotel overlooked the river crossing at Rourke's Drift and gave a panoramic view of the valley. This was a truly beautiful country! Visiting the actual battlefield of Rourke's Drift, Terry gave an excellent narration as we visited the museum and the various monuments. This was the culmination of our journey to Rourke's Drift. This was an outstanding tour that conveyed the history of the Zulu War, the heroic stand at Rourke's Drift, and provided some of the most beautiful scenery in all of South Africa. I highly recommend this tour with THIS tour company!

Booked this tour for my Welsh husband, who'd always wanted to visit....he absolutely loved it! Thammi and Bella, our guides were lovely and went out of their way to ensure he had a very memorable trip. A long drive there and back, but through the most beautiful contryside....and lunch at a very picturesque lodge overlooking the Buffalo River. Would recommend to anyone who has even a slight interest in zulu /British war and/or zulu history. Well done 1st zulu safaris who ran this trip for Viator
