Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

Hi All
As some of you are most likely aware , I've been back from the Ian Knight & Paul Marais Tour for just under a week , I'd like to thank one of our members , Johann Englebrecht , and his wife Gudrin ( hope the spelling is right ? ) for our stay at his Guesthouse ' Dusk Till Dawn ' , I cant recommend it more highly , it was superb , a fantastic place , excellent guest rooms and amenities , no doubt one of the best places I've stayed anywhere ! , certainly top of my list with places I've stayed in Sth Africa . Johann certainly knows his stuff , on , and in , the Luneburg area , regarding the early settlements , and of coarse the war of 1879 , along with the earlier Shaka Battles . Once I get hold of someone to put my pics on the laptop , I'll certainly send some pics to Graves1879 ( Sorry Mate ) , hopefully he'll post them on here when he gets the chance , if anyone is thinking of going to SA , and looking for somewhere to stay in the Luneburg area , you cant do any better than to contact Johann , he runs Tours etc from his Guesthouse , believe me , you wont be disappointed , I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again , Ian & Paul were so impressed they are looking into making Johann's place a permanent fixture from late 2017 onwards . Thanks again Johann , everybody had a wonderful time .
Cheers 90th Salute Joker

Thank you Gary for the kind words! It really was a great weekend, one I had been looking forward to for a long time!! Great sharing with you guys and also meeting other like-minded, crazy Zulu War enthusiasts!!! Looking forward to the next visit! Hope I can show you something new then and to convince Mr Knight about the actual position of the V shaped laager of Moriarty!!!!

Groete Johann,

Ja, 'n baie mooi plek in 'n mooi gebied. Hoe is die water voersiening daar, erg soos noord Natal of beter?

Beste aan Gudrun

Hi All,

For those with Tom Tom's etc and interested in calling in to this guest house in the future it's location is 27deg 11.703'S/31deg0.112'E.
To find it travel out of Piet Retief, south,  on the Pongola road for 29.7km. Turn right at grid loc 27deg 12.495' S/31deg01.637'E. The farm will be found some kilometres ahead in picturesque farmland.  Using the above locations on Google earth well illustrates the setup on your computer screen.

Regards,

Barry
