Zulu Battlefield Tours South Africa Rorkes Drift Isandlwana Boer War Spion Kop

Zulu Battlefield Tours, South Africa (Rorkes Drift & Isandlwana) + Boer War (Spion Kop)

South Africa
 
The history of South Africa has been forged by many conflicts - particularly those between three great nations - the Zulus, the Afrikaner (Boer) settlers & the once mighty British Empire.
 
Our Zulu Battlefield Tours to South Africa visit Rorkes Drift and Isandlwana, accompanied by a knowledgeable battlefield guide, who will bring the events leading up to this famous battle on 22 January 1879 to life, with heroic stories from both sides. 11 Victoria Crosses were awarded that day – so be sure to watch Michael Cain in the film 'Zulu' before you leave home. Lesser known Zulu battlefields, such as those at Ulundi, can also be visited on request.
 
We also offer tours to the key battlefields of the South African War (1899 -1902) - also known as the Anglo Boer War - including visits to Spion Kop, Ladysmith, Colenso, Kimberley and Mafikeng. Tours of the Frontier (Xhosa) War battlefields in the Eastern Cape are also available on request.
 
For expert advice on Zulu Battlefield tours in South Africa, including  Rorkes Drift & Isandlwana, & Boer War battlefields including Spion Kop, contact us on 01582 766122 today. We can tailor made a holiday to your exact requirements.
 
We have been arranging Zulu Battlefield tours in South Africa, including Rorkes Drift Isandlwana, & Boer War tours to Spion Kop for over 20 years.
ALL OUR ZULU BATTLEFIELD TOURS TO SOUTH AFRICA are financially protected, wherever in the world you live.

KwaZulu Natal offers visitors a superb array of holiday activities, from a Big Five safari to walking in the Drakensberg Mountains and the warm beaches of the Durban North Coast. But it’s the Zulu history and culture that fascinates many people, especially our Zulu Battlefield tours in South Africa to Rorkes Drift and Isandlwana.
 
We also offer tours to significant Boer War sites. Fierce battles were fought at Spion Kop and around the besieged towns of Ladysmith, Kimberley & Mafeking. Even if you aren’t a history buff, it’s impossible not to be moved by our excellent guides who vividly bring the story of these conflicts to life on the very ground on which they were fought.
