Durban, Drakensberg, Battlefields and Safari Self Drive

A thrilling holiday option for those seeking culture and experience. Perhaps of particular interest to those with a penchant for battlefields and history, Isandlwana and Rorke's drift are often described as thought provoking and many describe this historical area as emotive. Take a private guided tour of the Battlefields, marvel in the beauty of the immense Drakensberg Mountains and enjoy delectable cuisine and fine wine throughout. A stunning itinerary which is slightly off the beaten track and we love this for second or third time visitors to South Africa.
