Fugitives Drift Lodge 4 Star

from £292 per room night

 
 

Location

Surrounded by green hillsides and plains in a 5,000 acre natural heritage site, this well-appointed lodge presides over an epic landscape. It was where famous colonial battles were once fought and the property faces both Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. Today it offers not just a slice of this history but also a chance to be a part of South Africa’s great outdoors - being perfectly situated for treks, tours and especially birdwatching.

Rooms

Decorated in modern, homely designs, the spacious cottages each have a private veranda giving a view over the plains that flank the Buffalo River Gorge. You could also opt for a private cottage with two en-suite bedrooms and a living room. Great for families or two couples. Whichever you choose, this home from home also has communal spaces for getting together around the fire, maybe swapping a story or two.

Activities

A delightful garden, home to numerous bird species, and a large swimming pool for cooling off on hot afternoons are set in the grounds here. Battlefield tours are a huge draw here, so be sure to explore the famous Zulu sites with registered guides – with special experiences for kids to understand them too. Tours also head out to Mangeni Falls, Masondo and for walks, fishing and horse-riding.

Dining

The superb cuisine served up at Fugitives is a combination of South African and global flavours. Dine surrounded by Zulu war memorabilia in what is one of the country’s most splendid settings. Formerly a family home, this space features the original verandas and an outdoor dining area that affords sublime views across the plain with Isandlwana in the distance. A private venue, the Harford Library, is available for group bookings too.
