Guided game drives and walks are available on request and subject to availability. All drives are in open game viewing vehicles. The game farm can also be explored on foot as we have no dangerous predators. 

​The Battlefields tour includes a description of the context of the Anglo-Zulu War and events leading up to the outbreak of hostilities in January 1879.

​​Zulu Homestead Visit starts at the Elandskraal Store, which is a traditional Zulu trading store where you can buy pots, curios and mingle with the locals. From there you go to a farmhouse to meet a family that have traditionally farmed for generations. This is followed by a visit to a local village halfway between Rorke’s Drift and Isandlwana
