Mncube, Bryan

Bryan Mncube

  • Isandlwana, Rorkes Drift, Fugitives Drift

Bryan Mncube was brought up in Rorke’s Drift. Since his childhood, he has done a lot of travelling and working in Europe and in a number of other countries within Africa. He comes from a Marketing and Logistics background, but has always been passionate about South Africa’s remarkable history- in particular the history surrounding the Zulu War, and about sharing these amazing stories of human courage and endeavor with the world.

There are many powerful lessons that are to be extracted from these subjects. Bryan has learnt that the stories that he tells on the Battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift are not just stories about conflict; these are stories about human beings, and about compassion. For Bryan, being back home and telling his home stories, sharing this platform with the best lecturers in the field, and being part of keeping the legacy of David Rattray alive through the magic of the story, is an absolute honour.
