Kruger, Drakensberg & the Battlefields

Discover South Africa's dramatic landscapes and fascinating heritage from Kruger National Park & the Drakensberg to Eswatini, Zululand, Isandlwana, Rorke's Drift, Pretoria & Soweto

The popular image of the Anglo-Zulu war is coloured by the garrison battle at Rorke’s Drift featured in the 1964 film ‘Zulu’. This features prominently in the history of the region and recalls the siege of Ladysmith, the exploits of Winston Churchill as a War Correspondent and the battles at Spioenkop, all set against the glorious backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountains, known to the Zulu people as Ukhahlamba or ‘Barrier of Spears’.

The landlocked and independent kingdom of Eswatini, one of Africa’s best kept secrets reveals mountainous grandeur, lush forests, fertile valleys and the hot still beat of the African lowveld. The itinerary includes an extended stay at Kruger National Park, renowned as one of the largest and best managed game reserves in the world with over 700 species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibian. Top of most people’s ‘must see’ list will be the ‘Big Five’: elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard, all frequently sighted.
