Day 1: THURSDAY AFTERNOON

Arrive at Base Camp by late afternoon for a briefing, beers and a braai to get to know each other. The riding raconteurs will give a brief overview of the lead up to the Anglo Zulu War and these battles.

2

Day 2: FRIDAY: BATTLE SITES DAY

The routes will take the riders to both Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift

3

Day 3: SATURDAY: ADVENTURE DAY

Due to popular demand from previous Bike & Battle participants, Adventure Day for the more technical riders will be on trails very seldom ridden and will include all the area can throw at them.

While not being so hectic, the shorter, easier route will still challenge the riders within their comfort zone.

4

Day 4: SUNDAY: WAGON TRAIL

The rewards trump the climb to the top of the Wagon Trail, with no doubt every rider having their skills tested on the descent.

As before, the recreational riders are not neglected with the shorter route taking in some exhilarating trail in the commercial farms

Detour Trails means adventure and pure mountain bike fun to me!

I have been to No Man’s Land, Lesotho and the Zululand Battlefields with Detour Trails and each experience was a unique adventure. You get to ride awesome trails in untamed places with like-minded people who love the great outdoors and enjoying adventures on mountain bikes. A well organised team takes care of your every need including a back-up vehicle with full support, delicious meals and a fun experience for as many days as you desire!
