Rorkes Drift Lodge was without doubt the best place we stayed on our 10 week tour of Southern Africa. The service was excellent and the accommodation was outstanding. But exceeding all this was the food. It really was first class and without doubt we had some of the best meals of our trip at the lodge. Ever since I saw... More

Beautiful setting and we had great accommodation in the rather unique former water tower. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly; and instead of self catering we ordered food from the kitchen - which was really excellent - both for good vegetarian and meat dishes. In fact we would love to get the spicy sweet potato soup recipe! We would... More

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
