    Amazing trip to the battlefields. The Zulu dancing and singing was genuine and not the "canned" variety. Unexpected birthday present for hubby was thoughtful. Hosts could have been around more instead of having to search for them. Three or four flat tyres on camp vehicles...More

    Taking into consideration that all properties in Roarkes Drift are expensive we found this not up to our expectations. Very eco, no fridge, tv or internet and whilst the staff were excellent not sure cost was justified and would not recomend.More

    Hi We'll be staying at Isibindi in October. We only have two days to enjoy our visit. With a game drive included we would also like to have a guided tour of the Battlefields. Three questions.... Does this tour need a full day to fully appreciate the surroundings and history? How do we book a guide? What would the cost be? Many thanks
