          Stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting Rorkes Drift, but could easily have stayed for 2 nights. Beautiful accommodation with private balcony overlooking the stunning game reserve. The evening cultural show of Zulu dancing was so brilliant and very atmospheric.

          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
