The Battlefields Tour
Explore the historic battlefields that bore witness to innumerable fierce clashes that shaped South African and British history. An experience that will forever be a KwaZulu Natal holiday highlight. Your Natal battlefields day tour starts as you are picked up from your Durban vacation accommodation and transferred in a luxury microbus or luxury mini coach. Your journey takes you on a scenic drive through Pietermaritzburg, the capital city of KwaZulu Natal, passing sugar cane fields and forest areas to Greytown, the birthplace of General Louis Botha.
From here on you will experience the Natal hinterland, and proceed to the rural areas of Tugela Ferry and Pomeroy. Here you can view locals in their traditional dress and an array of traditional beehive-shaped huts, and proceed to Fugitives' Drift - the grave site of Lt. Coghill and Lt. Melville.
Your journey continues to Rorke's Drift Museum where you'll be able to view a spectacular display of the Anglo-Zulu War which gives an audio visual depiction of the Rorke's Drift battles and many others. Your final stop is a visit to the battlefields of Isandlwana where you'll discover the remarkable story of the spear-wielding Zulu tribe who defeated a mighty British Army. Your Natal Battlefields day tour comes to an end as you meander through Nkwaleni Valley ‘the Valley of the Virgin Warrior', before returning to your Durban accommodation.
