The waterfall where Lord Chelmsford found himself at the time of the battle of Isandlwana and the Ingwebeni valley where the Zulu army was discovered prior to the battle. This is an excellent tour which takes in some remarkable geography surrounding the battlefield of Isandlwana.
The crack in the Buffalo River where the Zulus crossed the river on their way to Rorke’s Drift. This tour is available either on horseback or by Land Rover.
BLOOD RIVER AND THE SITE WHERE THE PRINCE IMPERIAL WAS KILLED
A trip to Blood River (a battle fought between the Boers and Zulus on 16th December 1838) is well worth the long drive: 64 life-size solid bronze wagons now sit on the site of the battle and are a remarkable sight.
A visit to the site where the Prince Imperial of France was killed by the Zulus (on 1st June 1879) can be added to the trip to Blood River. This journey traverses some very remote and beautiful parts of Zululand and is one which is rarely undertaken.
HLOBANE, KHAMBULA AND ULUNDI
Trips to these Anglo-Zulu War battlefields can be undertaken, but we require advance booking. These trips are full-day trips and will appeal to those who have a particular and specific interest in the Anglo-Zulu War.
WALKS and FISHING
It is quite safe to walk on the property; guides are available to accompany those wishing to walk longer distances. The most popular walk is to the great ledge overlooking several hundred square miles of unspoilt Zululand. There is no charge for this walk. Fishing and the hike from Isandlwana to the Buffalo River (the Fugitives’ Trail) are also available.
We have an ever expanding network of single track ranging from flat to steep, technical and some not so technical. We have plenty of Jeep track (two track). You can either bring your own bike, or we have a small selection available for hire. One of the many perks of cycling on our property is viewing the array of plains game that live here, such as Giraffe, Zebra, Blesbok, Wildebeest , Impala and many more….
