The Zulu Trail
Developed by AWT and our in-country partners, the objective of The Zulu Trail Expedition is to travel to the rich and diverse biospheres and remote areas of the KwaZulu Natal Province on the eastern seaboard of South Africa:
Complete our challenging 5 day, 100km, Zulu Trail following what we believe is an ancient route from the old Zulu iron smelting sites on the Tugela River to the Anglo-Zulu War battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift.
Hike the Fugitives Trail from Isandlwana battlefield to the Buffalo River, following the route British soldiers took that fateful day in 1879.
KwaZulu Natal is peppered with battlefield sites from the Anglo-Zulu & Boer Wars.
AWT as put together various itineraries for your group to experience the locations, as well as the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of British, Boer, and Zulu soldiers.
You will visit the memorial locations from both sides of the wars, and hear the stories brought to life by our exceptional historians.
