That would be great, see we have all been in the British forces going back to Culloden, maybe further myself included but the Zulu war has always had this pull on me, would love to visit Isandlwana but would have to win the lottery Iam afraid...lol

Paul start saving your Pennies , there is a 10 day trip available in May , and then a Zulu War Tour in March 2017 covering all the Battlefields , which I think is 3 Nights at Isandlwana .

Paul here is the link for next March . Depends what your main interest is , next March you may only have a day on the plain at Isandlwana , where as in May , we are staying at Isandlwana for about 10 days . The May trip is basically about Isandlwana , all the finer details of who was where , and what happened at the so called where ! .
