    OH if they retreat far enough, the Tse Tse fly will cause problems, along with malaria.
    Planning on retreating to the Niger river? Actually, just checked the map - only need to go halfway up Mozambique. Zulus win at home. Probably win away too. IIRC, Apaches not a big tribe and not know for large party operations.

    Not familiar with the terrain in Zululand (mostly plains and rolling hills?) or the weather. Assume milder weather in Africa? For my money a horse has nothing to do with it.

    Now for the coin toss?

    I'd have to say it would depend on the terrain.

    Oh wow, sounds like Zulus, apparently Zulus could run en-mass all day without respite. Apparently, when hunting Elephant, they could keep up with them for several days.

    sorry about the mix up, American history is probably my least studied topic.

    I can't really say, not having enough knowledge on one group

    Apache warriors generally relied on their feet to move.

    Apaches weren't great horsemen, unlike the Commanches of nearby Texas. In fact, an Apache would just as soon eat his horse as he would ride it. As soon as an Apache child could walk, he or she was taught to run...and run, and run. Young boys would run several miles up and down steep mountains every morning, their mouths filled with water. As they finished, they would spit the water out at the feet of the warriors, showing that they had breathed properly (through the nose) and had further developed their inner spirits. Countless U.S. Army after-action reports tell of Apache warriors on foot outdistancing entire cavalry troops. Apaches could run 70 miles in a day, several days in a row. Warriors would often go up to four days without sleep in order to wear down or evade pursuers.
    From this is good read...
