Just stayed at Fugitives Drift Lodge in the heart of the Zulu War Battlefields. The place itself is stunning, full of history, memorabilia and artefacts. We visited Both Rorke's Drift, made famous by Stanley Baxter & Michael Caine in the film Zulu, and Isandlwana, the site of a huge 'British' defeat. Our guides Mphiwe and Andrew Rattray were excellent and their accounts of the battles kept all guests thoroughly engrossed. If you are interested in history or not you can't fail to be taken in by the whole experience. Great place, great staff and great food!
