hello to everyone, been reading posts for a few months now and am delighted to join in maybe. My interest started like many others with the film Zulu, me and my friends were still at school and I still bore my familly by proudly announcing that we all saw it 7 times.
Now many more, I was lucky enough to visit Rorke's Drift last Easter whilst working in Johanesburg, the long drive was well worth it, not sure the toyota corolla hire car liked the road though.
I served with the paras (TA) during the 80's so have an interest in most things military


thanks to the organisers for making this happen

Welcome to the forum, John.
You mention that during Easter last year you managed to visit Rorke's Drift -- did you also find the time to visit Isandlwana?

Robert

unfortunately didn't have time to visit Isandlwana, we did do the tour of the nearby zulu village which I found fascinating, I remember our guides second name was buthelezi, a co incidence perhaps ?

Has anyone stayed in any of the accommodation huts, very tempting for my next visit early next year
