Found this wonderful site and could'nt be more pleased. Live in the US where the interest in the Zulu War is minimal to say the least. I've found a new home.

At this point I'm watching the UK History account of the Zulu war. So came to the computer and found your site. It's just my luck that your proposed tour returns as my leave commences!
Have a good one

Hi everyone, what a great site!!!! I live in Johannesburg South Africa and have been interested in the Zulu War and the Second Boer war for many years and have read many books on this subject. The film i have seen around ten times and i never tire from watching it. I have had the pleasure to visit Rorke's Drift and Isandhlwana and it was a very moving expereince and it makes your hair on the back of your neck stand up. What brave men those soldiers and Zulu warriors must have been. Another battle site that makes you shivver when you visit is Spion Kop (Boer War) Keep up the good work your site is the best. We will always remember. Happy New Year one and all

I think I must have first seen the film "Zulu in 1970 when I was 5 yrs old. It made quite an impression on me. In 1994 I found myself working in a South African casino about 4 hours from Rorkes Drift. I have visited the site and it is quite an experience. I have read extensively about the Anglo-Zulu wars, and it's all down to being inspired by the film all those years ago.
