RIP Ken Gillings

We were shocked to learn today about the death of Anglo-Zulu War historian and Historical Trips Guide Lecturer, Ken Gillings.

Ken has just led a very successful tour of the Zulu battlefields for Historical Trips and I had spoken to him only last week about some new tour ideas we were working on.

As a guide, he was peerless in his knowledge and passion for the South African battlefields and our recently returned guests loved his irrepressible energy and enthusiasm. Among the unanimous praise were many requests that we do more tours with him.

We are all thinking of Ken’s family at this difficult time.
