Lonely Planet review

If you have seen Zulu, which was filmed in the Drakensberg, the scenery around Rorke’s Drift may come as a bit of a disappointment. The landscape is still beautifully rugged, however, and the Rorke’s Drift Orientation Centre , on the site of the original mission station, is excellent. The Zulu know this site as Shiyane, their name for the hill at the back of the village. The Rorke’s Drift-Shiyane Self-Guided Trail brochure (R3) is a helpful reference. Two local Zulu guides, Thulani Khuzwayo and Siyabongo Mbatha give a tour of the area.
