I just returned to the States from a 3 week vacation in South Africa that included a visit to the battlefields at Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift. What can one say after viewing the monuments, cairns, the escarpments and walking on the hallowed grounds - simply awesome with chills going down my spine. Have been an avid reader on the forum for several years and have thoroughly enjoyed your insights and comments. but seeing the battlefield at Isandlwana with it's undulations, dead ground and dongas, it brings the many books on the battle that I have read to life. Seeing the grave site of Melvill and Goghill was quite moving and found the terrain they had to travel unbelievable. Time was limited so was unable to stay at Isandlwana for long to really absorb being there; so I am now working on a return visit to Isandlwana in 2017 to spend more time there. Just wanted to say that if any forum member is thinking of visiting Isandlwana, do so - you will not regret it. Thanks for a great forum.

Hi Brillo
Glad you enjoyed the trip. Ian Knight will be leading a trip next March so if you're thinking of going next year I can't think of a better scenario. Check out his website and start saving!
Personally I can't wait

Regards and best wishes

iSandlwana is one of the places I would love to visit along with RD and other battlefields of the AZW.

Another place that I would also love to visit is Gettysburg, especially Little Round Top and the copse of trees on Cemetery Ridge where Pickett's charge was heading for.

And who could resist visiting Waterloo, or going to the co-ordinates (lat-long), where the Titanic sank.

Many people cannot visit these places, however, we can honour and respect the lost souls in our own way. And I must thank my friend Gary (90th), for giving my respects to the fallen everytime he visits Zululand, Thanks mate. Salute
