Very comfortable accommodation with excellent attention to detail. The most delicious breakfasts! Stunning views, peaceful and especially enjoyed the bird-watching walk. Highly recommended whether you are on a Battlefields tour or just want to get away from it all.

We stayed for two nights. Location, on a hillside overlooking the valley was amazing, with sunrise over a clouded valley and sunsets illuminating the distant hills making the effort to travel up the hillside well worth while. The approach road is an unmade but well marked farm road and we were made well aware of this but it was easily... More

Beautiful setting, helpful staff, loved our 2 nights there! Thulani our Zulu guide was also a wealth of knowledge. We had the larger self catering apartment which was perfect. There was a bedroom, living area and kitchen complete with wood burning fire and an outdoor brai area. We had a brai every night which was great!

We chose this place for it's proximity to Rorkes drift and Isandlwana land (both of which are excellent and very close). However, ended up fall in love with the place itself. An amazing location, with stunning views and pure peace and tranquility. Massive lawn for the kids to run around on, nice walks to do on the property, great horse... More

We had a wonderful two nights here. The accommodation was comfortable and the views very good, friendly dogs and horses roaming free allows one to connect with the surroundings. A great place to get away from the hustle-and-bustle

Do not be put off by the long, windy, bumpy entrance to the lodge. Once there you relax in comfortable, clean, large, stylish rooms and soak up the 180 degrees views over the garden and a wonderful valley. Guests can self cater. We enjoyed the home made meals served outside around a brazier generating enough warmth 2 mornings & evenings... More

Holidaying in South Africa and visiting Rorke's Drift we had the good fortune to book 2 nights at R.D Lodge. We enjoyed luxury accommodation in a one bedroom unit and our travelling companions in the apartment with kitchen facilities, where we gathered for breakfast and BBQ (brai) evening cook-ups! Very well setup kitchen for self catering with the option for... More

The food was delicious and plentiful, freshly cooked, served at a time of your choosing with a different and varied... More

We wanted to visit the famous battlefields of the Anglo-Zulu War and it turned out that Rorke's Drift Lodge is ideally situated to visit the two most famous sites namely Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift. We were captivated by the stories of local guide Paul Garner. Our chalet was very clean and comfortable, the setting and views beautiful. The staff were... More

I stayed at RDL at very short notice, and was really impressed with everything I saw. The units have clearly been a labour of love, and are not only clean and well maintained but have character also. The reception was great and I really felt as if the owners were bending over backwards to look after me. The farm track... More
