1879Graves. Thanks for posting 90th photo's which I had planned to post just after his return from Zululand. But personal issues held things up. 90th is aware of what I was going thought so I'm sure he understood. So thanks again for posting his photos. agree

Good Stuff Gary, in particular the 'Donga' shots, not a lot of people bother going that far along.

Hi Frank
Thanks Frank . I'm hoping to walk the whole Donga this time when I get there , among a few other places I didnt get much of a chance to get to , ie Top Of Black's Koppie , Top of Conical Hill , NC Monument cant believe I missed it last time , but I was bloody excited to be there ! LOL , and just didnt notice it away to the right of the majority of Cairns / Monuments .

Hi Steve
Thanks mate for doing the panorama , I've got many that can be joined that way . When Pete can get a chance , I'm sure he'll post the other 900 or so , that I sent him on a disc , it may even be more scratch .
Cheers 90th

Don't forget Shepstones Grave, Ngwebini ( you have to get to the bottom then see how fast you can get out), and of course the Quabe valley.................amongst other things of course. Very Happy

Hi Frank
I did Shepstone's Grave , walked up west face , then walked around from Shepstone's to Younghusband's . Will try to get to the valley , would enjoy seeing how long it takes to climb out of it ! .

Its an interesting one to do because, according to tradition, raw paused on the top then opened fire. If you do the climb and time it you will get an idea how long it took the Zulu impi, then add that time back to TMFH time frame......................... gets interesting mate.

Thanks for the photos 90th there great it reminds me of the great time i had at the lodge also, Did you take a photo from on top of Ithusi of the battle field one of the best views one can ask for this would of been the view the first zulu skirmishes had as there were about to take out the rocket battery thanks again by the way did you go to any other battle sites mate ?

Hi Aussie Inkosi
Unfortunately I didnt get a photo from iThusi last year , hopefully I may be able to do so on this trip . Yes , I went to all the Zulu War Battlefield Sites . We walked from the entrance at Isandlwana , along the dirt road as it runs past the Mtn , crossed the saddle , and walked the Fugitives trail , all the way to the Buffalo River , we then sat inside truck tyre tubes ( 1 at a time ) , and were hauled across the river by a rope ! , then walked up to Melvill and Coghill's Gravesite . At Hlobane we walked up the Mountain from where Buller ascended , then walked across the plateau , and came down the Devils Pass , then had to negotiate intenda Neck , as there are no roads or tracks , we had to get down best we could , which was bloody more difficult I thought than Devils Pass itself ! Shocked Shocked . Glad you liked the photo's , from memory , I took over a thousand or so , when you combine my Phone and Camera ! Shocked Shocked .
Cheers 90th Salute

Aussie is right about iThusi but take some 360 degree shots back down the plain and along the Quabe. The all over view of the area is unsurpassed

Then imagine your sitting on your horse, some thing very close to your heart I know Very Happy , and your name is Barker. What did you see early morning of the 22nd, or really what could you have seen?
Its a game Ive played at iSandlwana many times ( best done with a bottle of cold dry white wine and a snack basket from the hotel).

90th I thought I should send for everyone my favourite photo of Isandlwana simply perfect
Taken from Itusi from were the first view the Zulus had as they were begining there famous
Horn formation at the camp of Isandlwana
The second and third photo covers the Zulu crossing point of the Buffalo river target Rorkes Drift
You can see Shiyane on the second photo top right hand corner please enjoy and Frank
I would love your comments mate
 
Seeing your going to visit Isandlwana later in the year mate the 3 best views in my opinion
Is Itusi , Hamilton Browns Ridge and the position of  the guns were simply Breath taking mate

Hi Aussie
Couldn't agree more. The view from Ithusi looking across the Notch, conical hill in the foreground and the battlefield beyond, great shot mate.
Strangly enough with the thousands ( literally) of photos I have taken Ive never got that one from the Zulu crossing point so really great to see.
Good stuff.
