We (2 adults, 2 kids - 14, 12) stayed for 2 nights at this amazing place. The information sent through by Christine was really clear and helpful, resulting in a fantastic couple days. The accommodation is so comfortable, the views are wonderful, all the staff are lovely - and the food is to die for!! We went for a lovely... More

I would like to commend the staff for the very high quality of food that comes out of their kitchen! The service is excellent! The view from our cottage is nothing but spectacular and there is nowhere else in the world were you will get a better view of a thunderstorm !

Along with my wife and our two oldest sons I wanted to visit Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift battlefields en route from Durban to Johannesburg. We decided to stay at Rorke's Drift Lodge for one night in mid December. What a great decision! We were provided all the information we could want in advance and we arranged to have two rooms,...

The property is situated five kilometres along a bumpy unmade dirt track totally unsuitable for cars with low profiles but our VW Polo hire... More

If you're looking for peace & quiet, in a home away from home, then this is the place. Family run, friendly but not intrusive, with stunning views to enjoy from your terrace or on a walk in the grounds

My wife and I spent 2 days here so that we could visit and experience the battlefields at Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift. After driving over what was described as the road to nowhere (actually only 5km of road engineered to reduce flooding but a bit of a challenge if you are in a low clearance vehicle), we were met by...

I was in the area to research the Zulu War battlefields and chose Rorke's Drift Lodge as an affordable place to stay within easy reach of the sites. It proved to be a very lucky choice. The owner Paul Lamberth knows a tremendous amount about the history of the area and could not have been more helpful. His tours are... More
