Zulu Kingdom Golf and Battlefields

A South African golf holiday combined with a stay in the historic Anglo Zulu battlefields of Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana. From GBP2515.00 per person sharing


Blessed with year round warm weather, golden beaches and world class golf courses, its easy to see why Durban and the surrounding coastal areas are South Africa's most popular holiday area. With the majestic Drakensberg Mountains, historic battlefields and game sanctuaries, there's much to supplement South Africa golf holidays to Durban and KwaZulu Natal.

Arrive at Durban International airport, where you will be met by our representative and assisted with the collection of your hire car. Drive south along the scenic South Coast Freeway to the Selborne Golf Estate and Spa, where you will stay for 2 nights. Spend the rest of the day relaxing, visit the spa or dip your toes in the Indian Ocean at the Selborne Beach Club.

The next morning play the Selborne championship course, set in indigenous forest and home to numerous small antelope and bird species. The rest of the day at your leisure.

On Day 3 depart for Durban and a morning round at the Durban Country Club. In the afternoon you will have time to explore central Durban before heading onto your next location, the Fairways Golf Lodge at Mount Edgecombe Country Club for 2 nights. The next day play a round on one of the 2 courses at Mount Edgecombe.

The following day you will drive north via Pietermaritzberg to the heart of the Natal Midland's for a round of golf at Boshoek, hailed as one of South Africa's most picturesque golf courses. After golf you will drive onto the Champagne Sports Resort, where you will spend the next 2 nights. Nestled in the Drakensberg mountains this must surely be one of the most dramatic setting for a golf course anywhere in the world.

A morning round at Champagne Sports Resort followed by an afternoon at leisure. Explore the Drakensbergs; follow a hiking trail, rent a mountain bike, visit the rock art centre or take a helicopter trip.

A leisurely breakfast before you drive onto the world renowned Fugitive's Drift, where you will stay one night (full board). In the afternoon you can join the lecture on location at Rorke's Drift, where your historian will bring the astounding events to life.

In the afternoon, drive back towards the coast to Zimbali Lodge, a stunning resort with great sporting facilities, a beach club and sumptuously decorated rooms.
