We really enjoyed the two nights spent at the lodge. The accommodation and service were very good and reasonable, a good place to see the battlefields of Isandwala and Rorke's Drift and more if you have more time to spare. Nice walks on the property, up the mountain with amazing rock formations, or down into the donga. The few km... More

Wanting to visit the battlefields led us to Rorkes Drift lodge, lucky for us. From the drive on the lodge track to the accommodation itself was awesome. Our rooms were different, but quirky - which added to our experience. Certainly to be recommended.

Our 2 night stop at Rorke's Drift Lodge was taken as part of a wider KZN trip. The lodge is ideally situated for visits to both the Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift battlefields. Our hire car was a Toyota Avanza and taking it steady this coped perfectly well with the drive up to the lodge. We stayed in the Kune family... More

Great place to spend a few days to relax and catch up on the local history. Lots to do, the scenery is amazing and the hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. The track into the lodge was no problem for my Ford fiesta.

This is a Wonderful Lodge, in a Wonderful location, I'm loathe to let the rest of the World know about this place... The owners and staff were fantastic, they were beyond helpful, along with their incredible knowledge about the battle sites, our trip was made memorable by a personal guided tour with the owner. I gladly recommend Rorke's Drift Lodge.... More

Climbing up the mountain in the car was an exciting experience. The accommodation and facilities were exceptional. Breakfast and dinner were served in style in our dining room. Views from rooms overlooking the historic valley below stunning -one could see the Battlefields vista and countryside from the apartment. Christine was a marvellous hostess and we would go back again.

We stayed in the Kubili unit - nice, clean and very enjoyable. Well equipped kitchen and BBQ facilities, lovely view and nice to see horses as well as some small game (duiker & kudu) on the farm. The roads in and around which give access are dirt roads, so don't plan on doing too much travelling when you get here...close... More

Thank you for your great review. And thank you for highlighting the road conditions. However, we must add that if you come in a vehicle that has good clearance driving around is not a chore at all. In fact, we have some guests who come here specifically to drive on our roads as they find it quite exciting. More

We travelled down via Swaziland (from Kruger National Park) soaking up the countryside thru Piet Retief and Vryheid. We were advised not to rely on the Sat Nav for the route near Dundee to Rorkes Drift - so a brief call and precise directions got us to the Lodge just as the sun was setting. The 4x4 ensured a trouble... More
