Is the Fugitives' Drift Lodge for Me?

The Zulu War of 1879 is famous throughout the English-speaking world for the great battles of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift.

The spectacular Fugitives’ Drift property, a Natural Heritage Site, overlooks both Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift, and includes the site where Lts.

Melvill and Coghill lost their lives attempting to save the Queen’s Colour of the 1/24th.

It was here that David and Nicky Rattray pioneered Heritage Tourism in South Africa and created an award winning lodge for visitors to savour this extraordinary saga.

Led by the finest guides in South Africa, thought-provoking and often emotionally charged tours are conducted daily to Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift.

Guests can also go on nature walks- either guided or unguided- to see the abundant wildlife and birdlife on the reserve.

The lodge is the most luxurious accommodation offered at Fugitives’ Drift, and was fully renovated in 2017.

Spacious and luxurious en-suite rooms have private verandahs, air-conditioning, and both inside and outside showers.

The lodge has a swimming pool, library, and excellent museum.

The Guest House has en suite rooms with air conditioning plus a swimming pool in the garden.
