If a 'sun-lounger' holiday is not your thing, this exciting two-week tour of South Africa's KwaZulu Natal, packed with outdoor activities and excursions, might rock your boat. This trip takes you high into the Drakensberg on the Lesotho border, through the famous 1879 Zulu War battlefields, on safari in Zulu King Shaka's former hunting grounds, and ends with three days at the stunningly beautiful Oysterbox Hotel in Durban.



Depart this evening on your flight to Durban.
Today you will collect your car hire and drive to your first hotel in the picturesque Drakensberg for a three night stay at Montusi Mountain lodge. Enjoy stunning views over the Drakensberg as well as the variety of activities on offer.
Drive east to the Battlefields to stay three nights at comfortable Fugitives Drift Guest House, on the reserve only 5 minutes from the main lodge with just 6 rooms each with private veranda, grouped around an old farmhouse, set in lovely gardens with a peaceful atmosphere. Here there are fascinating tours to the nearby battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift, as well as to Dingaan's Kraal and the Zulu -Valley of the Kings.
Learn about the fascinating history of the wars that were fought in this area.
