Just a question. Are there any tour operations that allow spending the night on the Isandlwana battlefield.

Wow, that sounds like a great idea! Salute

(Security would be the main issue I would imagine).

Hi Dave .
Not that I'm aware of , but I think the Fugitives Drift Lodge actually overlooks the battlefield . I'm certain there are photos here showing that to be the case . Tasker is right , I'd think security would be an issue .
Cheers 90th. Salute

Camping is not allowed Im afraid.
the iSandlwana Lodge looks over the battlefield.
I did camp there way back when before all the urbanisation took place, seem to recall that Neil allso did.

I can see why we wouldn't want tents and so forth pitched, but any reason why one couldn't take a late night stroll and stay out, so to speak?

Wouldnt be the most secure thing to attempt. Climbing over the fence could do a severe injustice to dangly bits. Suspect
