Zululand

OVERVIEW

The spectacular Fugitives’ Drift property, a 5,000 acre Natural Heritage Site, overlooks both Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift, offering you panoramic views over the Buffalo River and the rolling hills of rural Zululand. There is an ever-expanding network of single-track and jeep tracks through the reserve, ranging from flat to steep, and technical to more intermediate.

One of the many perks of cycling here is fantastic over-the-bars game viewing, with giraffe, zebra, blesbok and wildebeest all around on the ride to these famous Anglo-Zulu war battlefields. Explore the single-track maze through the rugged terrain of this part of northern KZN. A visit in July will allow you to partake in theannual RattRace, a local bicycle event started in 2007.
