Isaacs accompanied Lieutenant King on his voyage to Natal in search of King's friends, Lieutenant Farewell and Francis Fynn. Isaacs and King were shipwrecked in Natal Bay and while the crew built another ship, Isaacs ventured inland to visit Shaka's royal kraal. He records his impressions of the Zulu people and their customs, which are particularly interesting as they are an accurate account of the Zulu people before they came under European influence. He lived in daily contact with Shaka and was treated on the whole with favour, having rank and honours conferred upon him, as well as a large tract of land.
