Welcome to Isandlwana & Rorke’s Drift


However, for the full picture you must travel 15km across the plain to Isandlwana, the precursor to Rorke’s Drift. It’s here that, only hours earlier, the Zulu dealt the Empire one of its great Battlefields disasters by annihilating the main body of the British force in devastating style. Tellingly, Zulu Dawn (1979), the film made about Isandlwana, never became the cult classic Zulu is now. Victory sells better than defeat.
