Extraordinary Battlefieds Tour
Feb 2020
I cannot recommen Shelldon, and this tour, highly enough. We've just used hsi services for a shore excursion to Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift while in the port of Richard's Bay. This was a bucket list item for my travel partner and I was happy to tag along in the hope of enjoying some nice scenery en route. Having no real prior knowledge of the region, and my friend's mostly as a result of watching the movie "Zulu", Shelldon's encyclopaedic knowledge of the history leading to this conflict kept us enthralled for the entire three hour journey there. And once on the actual sites, it was all brought to life so clearly. And for the non-military history buffs, the scenery en route was jaw-droppingly beautiful and much more than I could have hoped for. As I said at the beginning, I cannot recommend this trip, and Shelldon in particular, enough! Thank you for a truly memorable day!

Well worth the trip
Aug 2019 • Solo
There is no point hiding the fact that this is a very long trip for a day tour, but there is also no other way to see the battlefields as they are very remote ! Shelldon does everything, not just the driving part as some « guides » usually do.

His explanations were truly insightful and we really discovered something we were not aware of. These places are very moving, even for non British people, I really recommend going there. Despite the long road, we never felt like we were in a rush, which I appreciate a lot (as I had to translate in another language for my mother) Furthermore, despite some African surprises on the road, he managed to keep the tour on time for the whole duration of the trip. Just amazing.

Thank you !

A great day with a friendly informative tour guide
Feb 2019 • Couples
We visited the Zulu Battlefields last week.From the moment he collected us at our hotel till the moment he dropped us back he gave us the best of days. He is so informative and enthusiastic about his subject that at the end of the day we appreciated so much more of how the battle came about and about its outcome.He never rushed and explained the whole campaign in depth and we really enjoyed the experience.A comfortable vehicle with stops for lunch that he provided.A long day but thoroughly enjoyable. When we visit again he will be our No 1 choice.
