Isandlwana Rorke’s Drift Tour

Isandlwana Rorke’s Drift Tour
This historical tour sees us visiting Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift in northern KwaZulu-Natal. We take lunch at Isandlwana Lodge.

The Battle of Isandlwana on 22 January 1879 was the opening, major encounter in the Zulu War between the British Empire and the Zulu Kingdom. A 20,000 strong Zulu army equipped mainly with spears and shields defeated a mixed British and native force armed with modern firearms and artillery. 850 British soldiers and around 450 African soldiers in British service died. Those in the firing line were killed to a man. Only 50 European enlisted men and five officers escaped, in addition to several hundred Africans who fled the battlefield. The Zulus suffered some 1,000 dead and many wounded.

Rorke’s Drift was a mission station in Natal, South Africa, situated near a natural ford (drift) on the Buffalo River. During the Anglo-Zulu War, the defence of Rorke’s Drift (22 January-23 January 1879) immediately followed the British Army’s defeat at the Battle of Isandlwana earlier in the day. One hundred and thirty-nine British soldiers successfully defended their garrison against an intense assault by four to five thousand Zulu warriors. The overwhelming Zulu attack on Rorke’s Drift came a hair’s breadth away from defeating the tiny British garrison. The successful defence of the outpost is held as one of history’s finest defences.
