8 Days / 7 Nights Battlefields, Bush & Beach Safari

Day 1 & 2: Battlefields

On arrival at King Shaka International Airport you will be welcomed by a member of our team, who will transport you to your selected accommodation.

First two days will be spent looking at the battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. At Isandlwana we will see: the battlefield where 24,000 Zulu impis out-manoeuvred and wiped out almost an entire British Regiment (The 24th) in less than half an hour! This historic site of Isandlwana, KwaZulu-Natal marks the British colonial army’s biggest defeat; this was their first encounter with the warriors of the Zulu nation in 1879. The hundreds of whitewashed stone cairns scattered across the battlefield mark the graves of British troops. This was an embarrassing defeat for the British as the Zulus were armed with assegais and spears representing a technologically inferior force. The on-site museum contains all of the details and memorabilia of the battle. Rorke’s Drift is the site where 139 British soldiers, including injured men, held the re-supply depot against 4,500 Zulu warriors for 11.5 hours before managing to ward them off. Eleven Victoria Crosses were awarded for the valour displayed by the British in this battle.

Accommodation on B, L, D basis.

Day 3 & 4: Phinda Private Game Reserve

After breakfast, you will make your way Phinda Private Game Reserve.

Phinda Private Game Reserve is a truly magnificent tapestry of landscapes, from woodland to grassland, wetland and forest, interspersed with mountain ranges, river courses, marshes and plains. The area boasts a high density of game in seven distinct habitats and, while the “Big Five” and about 400 bird species thrive here, it is renowned for its large population of endangered black rhino and the elegantly elusive cheetah.

This unique ecosystem includes a large portion of the world’s remaining rare sand forest and is situated close to the unspoiled beaches and marine reefs of the Indian Ocean. Travelers get the best of two worlds as a combination of exciting bush and beach adventures are accessible from the reserve.

Accommodation on B, L, D basis.

Day 5, 6 & 7: St Lucia Wetland Park

After breakfast, you will make your way to the St Lucia Wetland Park, where you will be met by our guide, who will take you to your selected accommodation.

The 332,000 hectare Park contains three major lake systems, eight interlinking ecosystems, 700 year old fishing traditions, most of South Africa’s remaining swamp forests, Africa’s largest estuarine system, 526 bird species and 25,000 year-old coastal dunes – among the highest in the world. The name iSimangaliso means miracle and wonder, which aptly describes this unique place.

Come and experience the diverse experiences in the 10 Jewels that make up the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. Enjoy the endless beaches that stretch 220 kilometers from Maphelane in the south to Kosi Bay on the Mozambique border, view game on self-guided or guided trails and routes on the foothills of the Lubombo mountains in uMkhuze or in the coastal forests and rolling grasslands of Lake St Lucia’s Eastern Shores. See the spectacular coral reefs and colourful underwater life whilst diving or snorkelling or embark on adventures ranging from kayak trips to horse rides.
