Battlefields Explorer – Self Drive

The great Battlefield of Isandlwana and the Oskarber, Zululand, northern Kwazulu Natal, South Africa

Self-drive Holidays

This self-drive 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 have the freedom of the road as you continue 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. UPGRADE CHAUFFEUR-DRIVE OPTION: This same itinerary is also available with the provision of a chauffeur service if you would prefer not to do the driving. 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 this will be in a luxury sedan vehicle and no guiding or commentary is provided.
