I can now announce provisional dates for the Knight / Marais trip to South Africa in May 2016 , this will be a 10 day trip compared to this months 8 day affair , Provisional dates being 5- 15th May , at this stage , it appears we'll be spending two nights at Ithala Game Reserve , which will take in trips to Kambula , Hlobane and most likely Intombi Drift as well , then 8 nights at Isandlwana Lodge , which will cover all aspects of that fateful day on the 22nd Jan , we will also go to RD which is only 9 miles down the road from Isandlwana . In May the light is better for photographs , much less haze , if there is to be any at all that time of the year . As it's coming into Winter we wont have to worry about Ticks and snakes , although I've only seen one snake in my three trips , and that was a juvenile Puff Adder whilst climbing Hlobane last year Shocked . The accommodation rates will also be quite reasonable as it's the low season , why it's the low season I don't know , the weather was excellent in May , as compared to this November when it was hazy , foggy and misty the last three days we were there. Ian K will certainly post the technical details etc on his Website , when this is available , I'll post the link here . I can say if you are thinking of going , you won't be disappointed , Ian's manner makes it easy to follow if anyone thinks they may struggle with the details etc etc , we have 6 months to save and get out there , I can tell you from my own personal experience , once you've been there , you'll want to go again , I can nearly guarantee it ! Joker Very Happy Salute Salute Salute I remember Springy told me as much via the pm facility last year , and how right he was . Salute

Hi Sas1
The food at Ithala Game Reserve and Isandlwana Lodge is exceptional , you cant beat the Ostrich at Isandlwana Lodge ,
or the Chicken Livers for breakfast at Ithala ! . Isandlawana Lodge is two courses for B'fast , 2 or 3 for Lunch ( depending on how hungry you are ) . and 4 for dinner ! . Salute

Here is a gentle reminder for those who may've forgotten about a wonderful opportunity , which awaits in May for those who wish to walk in the footsteps of those who did so , and died on the 22nd Jan 1879 .

Another reminder for anyone who is thinking of travelling to SA , to actually stay a week at Isandlwana , see for themselves the terrain , and distances involved , it will certainly make the Battle clearer in one's minds eye , you mightn't get a Medal ..... but you will surely have much more of an idea of what went on , when , and where and by whom ! .
Cheers 90th You need to study mo

Hi 90th
Yeah, good for you. Ian does a great job. Went with Holts in 2007 - absolutely fantastic. Been on my own three times. It's cheaper, but not not as good as going with Ian, Paul, and a group of Zulu War fanatics. Hopefully going with Ian's tour in 2017. Might see you then.
Cheers
