Hello everyone
I will be trvalling to Zululand sometime in March this year. It will be my third trip, and I'm really looking forward to it. I was initially going to travel around on my mountain bike, but have changed my mind, due to all the advice I've taken on board. I've spoken to Mr Charles Aikenhead, who owns the new Rorke's Drift Hotel. He's given me a great price based on a 10 & 14 night stay at his establishment. I have'nt decided which yet. I will be hiring a guide from the Rorke's Drift village. Their will be a lot of walking to do, as I'll be visiting Fugitive's Trail, Hlobane etc, also the walk down the pass that the 24th took from Helpmaaker to Rorke's Drift. I have'nt booked anything as yet, and was wondering if anyone who was thinking about visiting Zululand on thier own, but not sure, would they like to join me on the trip, and keep the cost down, hire car etc?
Cheers.

Be careful around the Hlobane area, especially the road from the base of the mountain to the coal mine, robberies are commonplace. I don't think a rental car will make it up Hlobane mountain either, a pick-up truck or 4x4 will get up there easily.

Good question Mr.G

Are the fire arm laws the same as the U.K. or is it permitted to own a gun under licence.

Is it not possible to cover the Battlefields on horseback? Some tour operators must include this in a package. Or are Horses available to hire in and around the Battlefield areas. After all that how its was done in 1879.

But on a serious note. I have heard of robberies etc, but mostly they've occured further north of Hlobane. But I will take all advice on board.
Thanks

It is possible to buy and own a gun for self protection in South Africa. The laws governing that are now pretty strict. A tourist has no chance of getting legal possesion of a gun.
To own a gun, a competency test has to be passed, the house/home that the gun will be stored in is inspected by the police, as is the applicant. A gun safe has to be installed.
However if you would like to, its allways possible to take a walk through some of the more 'interesting,, townships with a camera hanging round your neck and a nice leather handbag over your shoulder. It wont be to long ( definition of a split second) before a gentleman or two shows you a gun and explains its purpose in detail. That lesson does come at a cost of course, you would be asked to donate the camera, bag, phone, wallet, shoes and litterally anything of value, possibly even your wife, if your Indian.

Regards
