Zulu Battlefields

Share This Post

Isandlwana Lodge in Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa, has been lovingly created in total harmony with its surroundings and from its fantastic position on the iNyoni Rock where Cetswayo, the Zulu king, oversaw the battle of Isandlwana when the British troops were overwhelmingly defeated by upwards of 24,000 Zulu warriors, you have truly panoramic views of the region.

With just twelve rooms guests stay on a full board basis: you are assured of good food and wines with great service. When staying here be sure to pre-book your place on at least one of the battle field tours brought dramatically to life by the resident historian, Rob Gerrard or one of his associates.

The morning tale will begin on the lodge’s terrace with its commanding views of Isandlwana mountain and the sweeping plains, before moving down to Isandlwana itself and sharing in the bloody battle that ensued. Just as it happened on 22 January 1879 your afternoon will be spent at Rorke’s Drift where the battle continued to save the small station the other side of the Tugela River. Both stories are evocatively brought to life and there are few dry eyes amongst the present day listener.

The lodge is a registered birder friendly zone for those who still crave the wildlife and just a gentle walk away will bring you to the local village and museum. The lodge also has a small library and pool.
