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. This was an embarrassing defeat for the British as the Zulus were armed with assegais and spears representing a technologically inferior force. 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. 2xB,2xD Day 5 Dundee Spend time today in and around Dundee seeing the excellent Talana Museum displaying the events of the Anglo-Boer War.
