Battlefields Explorer - Independent Tour

Battlefields & Beach Explorer - Hero

Independent Tours

This independent tour itinerary is ideal for those wanting to visit the KwaZulu-Natal Battlefields and gain a deep understanding of the battles at Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. After a first night relaxing at the beach overlooking the Indian Ocean, you’ll be transferred by luxury sedan vehicle to Fugitives’ Drift Guest House. Here, you’ll experience their thought provoking and often emotionally charged tours that may leave you with a more profound appreciation of modern-day South Africa. Long family associations with the area and its people allow Fugitives’ Drift to offer unique Zulu perspectives on these remarkable battles. You’ll be certain of a once-in-a-lifetime experience with five star accommodation, world-class battlefield tours, abundant game and birdlife, superb food and wine, and breathtaking views out over Zululand and the battlefields. This independent tour itinerary is ideal for those who would like private transfers by luxury sedan vehicle, directly between each point on the journey. UPGRADE CHAUFFEUR-DRIVE OPTION: The same itinerary is also available with the provision of a chauffeur service. Your chauffeur driver will be at your disposal all day (8am-11pm) driving your chosen pre-booked route and stopping where you choose. Please note that no guiding or commentary is provided.
