This place is a real gem. The accommodation is superb, the food is fantastic and John and Heather instantly made me feel welcome. Everything about the place just made me feel at home - and what a home! This is affordable luxury on a big scale.
Right next door to Rorke's Drift mission and on the Buffalo River. Just a short hop to Isandalwana. But not just for historians - the countryside is beautiful and John and Heather will organise riverside walks were there's lots of wildlife.
This place deserves 5 stars ... and I've been to lots of 5 stars so I know.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At Rorke's Drift on the Buffalo River the new Rorke’s Drift Hotel stands the slopes of Shiyane Mountain (The Oscarberg), in the rolling hills of Zululand. The historic crossing that gives the area its name is within its grounds and the comfortable modern facilities are priced to meet the needs of the discerning traveller. The visitor will enjoy peaceful relaxation in the rural landscape, surrounded by iconic history and natural countryside. Phase One of the construction is now complete with 7 double and four single en-suite rooms. Phase Two will raise the capacity to 30 rooms so that coach touring parties can be accommodated, for the recommended two night stay. The hotel provides an affordable destination at this historic location. Visitors will be stunned by its position overlooking the Buffalo River and with its open views towards Isandlwana, and by its architectural design that is a modern amalgam of Zulu and Victorian cultures. ... more less
