This is probably one for Forum members down in South Africa but two, perhaps three, years ago I recall some talk of permission being sought for a hotel and/or rondevals accommodation complex to be built on the Mzinyathi overlooking the crossing at Rorke's Drift. I'm not sure I ever heard the outcome; does anybody know what happened to this proposal? (Personally, I was against it although I accept that being 6,000 miles away I am hardly quailified to adopt a NIMBY type stance and could justifiably be asked, "What's it got to do with you anyway?"!).

This has reminded me too that at one time there were also some plans for a working/living museum type village at the Drift; if I remember correctly donations for such a venture were sought. Did anything come of that?

Apologies if I am asking something that has been covered previously in the Forum.

Both projects are up and going! Adrian Greaves can tell you more about the village . In May I attended a meeting of The Battlefield Guides Of KZN where we visited the site of the proposed Hotel, where construction was already underway!

David Payne is also involved in these projects. He is a member, but haven't seen him for a while. He could be back at R.D.

PostSubject: Zulu Village   Rorke's Drift Hotel EmptyThu Sep 09, 2010 9:12 pm

I was at RD a few months ago and visited the Zulu Kraal which is only a few 100m from the RD buildings - if this is the site you mean then it is very much up and running, I was welcomed by a Zulu chief (considering it was early morning and quite cold he did well to oblige) and we shared some Zulu beer.

It is possible to stay in one of the beehive huts which I would love to do (my wife less so). Local schoolchildren learn about their history on-site.

Interesting that the Zulu would bury their chiefs in an upright position under the central cattle kraal facing towards the entrance - but more than that visitors would be welcomed and asked to sit within the cattle kraal - amidst the dung!
