As part of a tour of South Africa with Riviera travel we stayed at the Battlefields Lodge for two nights in November.
The Lodge is set in beautiful grounds that open out onto the plains and foothills of Kwa Zulu Natal.
We stayed in a delux block which were fairly simply furnished but nice and comfortable. We heard some criticism that the round buildings - silos - were a bit dark and cramped but can't vouch for that.
The restaurant and bar area is spacious. The food was very good and the staff very helpful and friendly.
Because of the Lodge's setting the early mornings and nightfall are beautiful to see. There are a number of wild animals roaming the plains outside the fence-springbok, ostriches, zebras-and standing on the balcony of the accommodation block gives you great views of them.
It's very well placed for visiting the Battlefields. I loved the place.
