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

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

Once you get over the 4.8 km of dirt track to get there; it really is a little gem. The owners have thought of everything, all the small touches that make a stay enjoyable and in a beautiful location.

After an interesting off road drive (definitely do not attempt in a low wheelbase car), this was a perfect find. Great location and accommodation & excellent service, together with good wholesome food cooked to order and brought to your unit. Spent a day visiting the local battlefields with Paul Garner, an extremely knowledgeable guide who is passionate about the history.... More

We travel a great deal for business and have stayed in a variety of places in South Africa. Rorke's Drift Lodge was the perfect get away for a long weekend and we only left because we had to return to work. Our guide Thulani was fantastic.
