This was one of the best things that we have ever done. We stayed for one night and were upgraded. I would suggest staying for two or even three nights. We did the Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana tours which were brought to life by the super knowledgeable Alastair Lamont. The lodge is located in a stunning setting and the service, decor and quality are second to none. I am somewhat of a military history buff, but my wife enjoyed the tours as much as I did. We were reduced to tears on a numbers of occasions and felt truly moved by the whole experience. A once if a lifetime experience that can be described as "outstanding".
