Rorke's Drift is a small pristine war memorial and museum surrounded by lawns and we had it virtually to ourselves at the end of October. In the museum you walk from room to room of the hospital building defended against 4000 Zulus. The exhibits and figures are a bit shop dummy but walking through with a guide bringing it to life and telling you what happened to each of the men at the time and then back in the UK vastly improves on the movie. We'd spent the morning at Islwanda which was the great Zulu victory against the British of the very same day. So we understood the whole picture, what led to the conflict and how it played out. Many people were in tears as the shadows lengthened on Rorke's Drift. A truly amazing day. Our two guides were from Fugitive's Drift Lodge. Zulu Joseph in the morning and British descendant and historian Andrew in the afternoon.
